July 30: Reading American Diaries

Join us as Steven Kagle discusses diaries as literature. Diaries are usually studied as
sources of historical or biographical information and not as works of art. Steven will use a few New England diaries to explain how to read diaries as literature an explain their place in American culture.

Steven Kagle is a former professor of English. He began studying diaries 60 years ago
while working on the diaries of the Adams family, and went on to write and edit five
books and several chapters and articles on American diaries.
