REMOTE VIA ZOOM: Monday Mornings: Not Quiet on the Homefront

Monday, November 229:30—10:30 AMOnline

We will explore young women's experience on the homefront as seen through the eyes of writers who lived through it themselves. Louisa May Alcott (Civil War), Lucy Maud Montgomery (WWI), Janet Lambert (WWII and Korea) and Marilyn Singer (Vietnam) all had firsthand experience that they transformed into fiction for young girls. In various styles, from beloved classics to malt shop romances to gritty urban young adult novels—these writers brought their own experiences to their work with tremendous results. Barb Fecteau is the librarian at Beverly High School, teaches in the library media program at Salem State University, and reads more children’s literature than is probably good for her.

Registration is required so we can send you the link to join us. Zoom invitation will be emailed to all registrants the day before the program.
