2011 is the centennial of the publication of Frances Hodgson Burnett's “The Secret Garden.” To celebrate this anniversary, there will be a conference at Dartmouth College, in Hanover, NH, on July 29-30.
Presenters include scholars and biographers Gretchen Holbrook Gerzina, Ann Thwaite, Angelica Carpenter, Michael Patrick Hearn, Peter Hunt, John Matteson, and Penny Deupree (great-granddaughter of Frances Hodgson Burnett).
A basic website is now up, and a more complete one will go up later.
Please pass along the information to listservs and anyone else who might be interested.
The conference is free and open to all.
