Kate Dike Blair and Don Zancanella: Two Novels of Concord
A continuation of the Transcendentalist discussion begun in December with Robert Gross’ The Transcendentalists and Their World, the Salem Athenaeum is pleased to present Kate Dike Blair and Don Zancanella, historical fiction authors with new books set in mid-19th century Concord, for more talk about this remarkable time period and its people.
Blair’s The Hawthorne Inheritance and Zancanella’s Concord both feature a who’s who of New England Transcendentalists—Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne and the Alcott, and Peabody families. Their conversation about these larger-than-life historical figures is not to be missed. Read more here.
The event will be on Zoom. Event link is sent 30 minutes before program start.
