The Gables is Gorgeous!

The flowering trees are doing their duty at The Gables right now! And the garden inside the site is still stunning despite the tulips being past their prime! Even on this rainy, dreary day, the garden and amazing wisteria in full bloom are something to behold. If you have a chance for a visit, be sure to come by…

Also, a reminder about our upcoming lecture…Dr. Lucinda L. Damon-Bach will give her lecture on May 16, 2012 at 7pm. It is entitled “Catherine Maria Sedgwick’s Literary Legacy.” Admission is a suggested donation of $10 for members of The Gables, $15 for non-members.
Presented by Dr. Damon-Bach, Professor of English at Salem State University and co-editor of Catharine Maria Sedgwick: Critical Perspectives. Internationally acclaimed in the 19th century and admired by her U.S. contemporaries, Catharine Maria Sedgwick’s life and works inspired male and female readers alike. This lecture will focus on Sedgwick’s early novels, friendships, and interactions with fellow authors (including James Fenimore Cooper, Lydia Maria Child, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nathaniel Hawthorne), exploring her role as a founder of American literature.
Damon-Bach earned her Ph.D. in English, at the State University of New York at Buffalo and has received many honors including the National Endowment for the Humanities Long-Term Fellowship. Damon-Bach is currently at Salem State University, but has also taught at Boston College and was a preceptor for the Expository Writing Program at Harvard University.
Her second co-edited book, Transatlantic Women: Nineteenth-Century American Women Writers and Great Britain, with Beth L. Lueck and Brigitte Bailey, is forthcoming from the University Press of New England in July 2012. In addition to publishing articles on other nineteenth-century American authors, Damon-Bach has helped to organize many conferences on Sedgwick and her contemporaries, including “Transatlantic Women,” at the Rothermere American Institute of the University of Oxford, U. K., which spawned her most recent book. She has delivered a great number of presentations across the United Sta
tes, from Hawaii and California to Michigan and Massachusetts.
