Margaret Fuller is recognized as an important early American literary critic, journalist, and the author of the first full-length feminist book in the United States. She once said: “I now know all the people worth knowing in America, and I find no intellect comparable to my own.” Join Rob Velella on Margaret Fuller’s Birthday (May 23) for a virtual conversation that examines this quote, its context, and its potential veracity. Velella is an independent literary historian. In 2010 he served as guest curator of “Margaret Fuller: Woman of the Nineteenth Century,” an exhibition at Harvard’s Houghton Library for her bicentennial. Free. Registration required. This talk will be offered through Zoom. Once registration is complete a confirmation email with the Zoom Virtual Meeting Room details will be sent to you.
