Number 1 New York Times bestselling author, Nelson DeMille, came to Wilton Library to discuss The Quest, a suspenseful, romantic heart-pounding adventure.
Through the generosity of an anonymous donor we are once again able to present Mark Schenker, Yale College Dean of Academic Affairs. In two unique lectures on the relevance of the great Victorian novels to today’s readers,  Schenker examines the social and psychological issues that confronted the Victorians and that continue to engage us in the 21st century.  These include class and gender, social responsibility and personal freedom, and the religious sensibility in an increasingly secular age.September 21:  novels of the early Victorian period (1837-1870), especially those by Charles Dickens, Charlotte Brontë, and Emily Brontë

Due to technical difficulties the October 5 lecture is not available online.
