Wednesday, April 11, 7:00 pm – On the Brink of War: Literary Boston in 1860

Every now and then we post an event which has little to do with horticulture, but everything to do with Boston.  On Wednesday, April 11, beginning at 7 pm, Brenda Wineapple, author of White Heat: The Friendship of Emily Dickinson and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, will speak at Boston College as part of the Lowell Humanities Series and Forgotten Chapters Project.  Her topic will be On the Brink of War: Literary Boston in 1860, and the lecture will take place in Devlin Hall, Room 101. Ms. Wineapple was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle award, a winner of the Washington Arts Club National Award for arts writing, and her work was named a New York Times Notable Book.  For more information, call 617-552-2203, or visit
