William Bartram's Travels: A Guided Literary Tour

This event is no longer on sale.

Tuesday April 19

6:00 PM  –  7:30 PM

Professor Nancy Hoffman leads us in a group reading of selections from William Bartram’s profoundly unique Travels, one of the most important written works of American natural history. William’s writing on “whatever may contribute to our existence . . . whether it be found in the animal or vegetable kingdoms” ended up playing a remarkably prominent role in shaping hundreds of years of American literature. Three meetings over six weeks. Wine & cheese provided.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to provide all students with standardized page numbers for reading assignments, Professor Hoffman has selected Francis Harper’s Naturalist Edition of William Bartram’s Travels as the text for this class. If you do not own a copy of Travels, or if you own a different edition of the book, you may arrange to have a copy waiting for you at the first class by selecting the “Adult + A Copy of the Book” ticket option below. Readings required for the first meeting will be distributed electronically.
