About the Event
Beginning with the letter that sparked a unique friendship, Ashley Andrews Lear examines the deep connections between two pioneers of American literature who broke the mold for women writers of their time. This is a fascinating portrait of a friendship that sustained two women writers in a time of social upheaval and changing norms in the American South.
