Anne Trubek - A Skeptic's Guide To Writers' Houses

Sunday, January 30, 2011 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

As a corollary to the question of why we read, Trubek considers why we make literary shrines out of the homes where great writers produced their work. Do we flock to authors’ houses simply to pay homage? To glimpse the ghost of a muse? Touring the haunts of Hemingway, Twain, Alcott, and others, Trubek reserves judgment as she observes guides, pilgrims, and décor.
