Lecture and Discussion. This live class will be recorded and available for later viewing.

In four shimmering, taut novels, author Elizabeth Strout has charted the life of Lucy Barton, a character whose personal struggles intersect increasingly with questions of history. In this class, we'll read Strout's highly acclaimed "Lucy" books in order to chart the journey of this iconic fictional character. We'll also consider the evolution of Strout's style and what the universe of these books has to say to us in 2024.
