Discovering E. M. Forster’s Secret Lives
Wendy Moffat discusses her new biography of E. M. Forster
Using photographs, images of holograph letters, and other evidence, Wendy Moffat will explore a few puzzles she had to solve in writing her biography of the British novelist E. M. Forster. A Great Unrecorded History: A New Life of E. M. Forster won the Biographers’ Club Prize, was selected as an ALA Stonewall Honor Book and a New York Times’ Top 10 for 2010. If you’re interested in biography, history of sexuality, archives, social history, or literature, this talk is for you.
Wendy Moffat is a Professor of English at Dickinson College, and she earned her Ph.D. in English literature from Yale University. She was a visiting fellow at Beinecke in 2007.
