February 15: Hildene Reads!

February 15 @ 7:00pm-8:30pm

Free

Join us, via Zoom, Wednesday, February 15, 7:00 to 8:30pm as we celebrate Black History Month with a discussion of Passing Strange, a fascinating work of nonfiction by Martha A. Sandweiss. “Clarence King is a hero of nineteenth-century western history. Brilliant scientist and witty conversationalist, bestselling author and architect of the great surveys that mapped the West after the Civil War, King was named by John Hay ‘the best and brightest of his generation.’ But King hid a secret from his Gilded Age cohorts and prominent family in Newport: for thirteen years he lived a double life—as the celebrated white explorer, geologist, and writer Clarence King and as a black Pullman porter and steelworker named James Todd,” as described by Penguin.
