READING CLAUDIUS: A Memoir in Two Parts

Book talk by author Caroline Heller

Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 11:30 am

DINING ROOM A, 6TH FLOOR

MADISON BUILDING, LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

 

A stunning elegy to a vanished time, Caroline Heller’s memoir traces the lives of her parents, her uncle, and their circle of intellectuals and dreamers from Central Europe on the eve of World War II to present-day America. The story, set primarily in prewar Prague, brings to life the lost world of European café culture, and reminds us of the sustaining power of literature in the most challenging of times. Professor Heller is the director of the interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Educational Studies at Lesley University, where she also teaches in the graduate school of education.

EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
