Speaker: Jennifer Hamlin Church

Church will read excerpts from her new book and discuss the lively research that went into it .The book is a biography of two people who left Queen Victoria’s England alone, as teens, 30 years apart, seeking unknown opportunity in America. Subtitled “The Sparkling Life of the Lupine Lady and the Professor Who Made it Possible” the book tells the story of Harry N. Gardiner, who became a Smith College professor and founder of the American Philosophical Association, and his niece, Hilda Edwards Hamlin, the real life lupine lady of Maine, role model for the fictional Miss Rumphius (1982) who “made the world more beautiful.” The book chronicles more than a century of history on both sides of the Atlantic
