Joel Myerson Annual Lecture Series
The Concord Free Public Library—in partnership with representatives from the Association for Documentary Editing, Ralph Waldo Emerson Society, Louisa May Alcott Society, Thoreau Society, and Margaret Fuller Society—will host the inaugural event for the Joel Myerson annual lecture series at the Concord Free Public Library’s Goodwin Forum in Concord, MA (virtual attendance options also available).
The lecture will be delivered by Megan Marshall, the Pulitzer-Prize winning biographer of Margaret Fuller: An American Life. The title of her lecture is “After Lives: Bringing Una Hawthorne Home.” Following the lecture, representatives from the four single-author societies and the ADE will contribute to a roundtable conversation. The lecture and roundtable will be followed by a reception in the Rotunda.
