Mr. Williams and Miss Wood

lettersLetters: A Vanishing Literary Form
February 8 and 9, 2018 at 1:30 pm. February 10 at 4 pm.

There was a time when people wrote letters. They took pen in hand and wrote. We take a look at letters written by the famous, the infamous and just ordinary people. Letters are revealing to say the least. They amuse, they reject, they encourage, they memorialize, they challenge, and they speak to the heart. Join us for an afternoon of letter reading that will send you home inspired to take pen in hand!

Gertrude Stein’s home at 27 Rue de Fleuers, Paris, was the place where artists and writers of the early twentieth century came for dinner and entertainment. Ms. Stein and her companion, Alice B. Toklas, knew them all and it was Stein who popularized the term “lost generation” in describing these expatriates, including Earnest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, and others.
