Edith Wharton's Lenox
Six Local Places where Edith Wharton's Presence still Resonates

An illustrated talk with author & historian Cornelia Gilder

Wednesday, July 25th, 3pm
Kimball Farms
235 Walker Street, Lenox, Mass.

Join us for another fascinating discussion in OLLI's 2018 Distinguished Speakers Series. Drawing on years of research and mentoring by old Lenox residents, Cornelia Brooke Gilder will give a unique virtual tour of unchanged corners of the Berkshires - some accessible to the public, others still private - which were cherished spots for Edith Wharton more than a century ago.

A lifelong Berkshire resident, Ms. Gilder was educated at Vassar College and Cambridge University, and is co-author of Houses of the Berkshires:1870-1930 (Acanthus Press)and Hawthorne’s Lenox (History Press).  She is co-curator of a current exhibit on Edith Wharton’s husband, Teddy, at the Mount. Her most recent book, Edith Wharton’s Lenox, was published in 2017.

Tickets are available online or by mailing in the registration form found by clicking here. Admission is $10 for OLLI at BCC members, and $15 for the general public. Admission is free to Berkshire Community College students and youth 17 and under.
