Members of the PPL Brown Bag Book Club will discuss American Bloomsbury by Susan Cheever. Copies of the book available at the Library's Circulation desk. 

Call Louise Moulton for more information:  455-8134.

Susan Cheever explores the extraordinary cross-fertilization of creativity in Concord, Mass., during the mid-19th century, when Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne and the Alcotts lived there as neighbors. American Bloomsbury offers a lively and insightful introduction to the personalities and achievements of the men and women who were seminal figures in America’s literary renaissance, and who, Cheever theorizes, influenced the social activism of  succeeding generations.
