Vermont Humanities 1st Wednesday: Five Hard Questions About Kipling in Vermont

October 5 @ 7:00pm-8:00pm

Free

On his farm overlooking Brattleboro, Rudyard Kipling wrote the Jungle Book and many of his Just So Stories, and began to draft his great novel, Kim. Christopher Benfey, author If: The Untold Story of Kipling’s American Years, answers hard questions about Kipling’s time in this country, including whether he should be considered partly an American writer.

Bio: Christopher Benfey is Andrew W. Mellon Professor of English at Mount Holyoke College. He is the author of five books about the American Gilded Age including A Summer of Hummingbirds, which won the 2009 Christian Gauss Award of Phi Beta Kappa, and If: The Untold Story of Kipling’s American Years. A frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books, Benfey is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and has held fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
