Welcome to Wilton Library
The collaboration between the Wilton Library and the Wilton Historical Society kicks off its 8th season of scholarly lectures with The Gilded Age: Culture and Conflict at the End of the 19th Century. Ann Greene, a faculty member and administrator at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of History and Sociology of Science, returns to deliver her lecture: The Gilded Age—A Familiar but Ambiguous Label for a Period of Rapid Change. Her presentation addresses many probing issues such as is the term Gilded Age a useful description of the era or does it raise more questions than it answers? She has written a book on the energy history of 19th century America, called Horses at Work: Harnessing Power in Industrial America and specializes in Gilded Age environmental, technological and political history. Reception following the talk. No charge, but donations are always welcomed. Series sponsored by an anonymous donor.
