Program Title GERTRUDE STEIN, EDITH WHARTON AND THE FOOL'S JOURNEY
 
Program Description The presentation is a hybrid of lecture, autobiography, and performance, and draws from Lynn Miller's research and expertise on performing historical auto/biography. It details Stein's life as art collector, innovative writer, and creator of a salon that brought together major international artists at her home in Paris. Wharton's critique of society's treatment of women and her struggles to escape Old New York and its strictures are main themes in this presentation. Working with these two writers enabled Miller to write a novel, "The Fool's Journey," where the main character writes a biography of Edith Wharton's life in the early part of the 20th century which parallels her own contemporary conflicts and journey.
