    The Southern California Society for the Study of American Women Writers will offer a moderated discussion on Elizabeth Keckley's Behind the Scenes: Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House (1868). We will discuss the use of this text in graduate and undergraduate courses. We welcome all who are interested. Many attendees will wish to read Keckley’s account (ideally the Penguin edition) in preparation for the discussion. A brief membership meeting will follow the discussion (approx. 15 minutes).
