A Discussion of Elizabeth Keckley's Behind the Scenes: Or, Thirty Years a Slave and Four Years in the White House (1868) and Southern California Society for the Study of American Women Writers Annual Meeting

SCSSAWW 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 be particularly interested in topics relating to the use of this text in graduate and undergraduate courses.  We welcome all who are interested and the conversation is open to all attendees at the session. Many attendees will wish to read Keckley’s account in preparation for the discussion.  We will use the Penguin edition. (There are several other editions also available, including through Project Gutenberg and an audio book, which participants may wish to access).  A brief membership meeting will follow the discussion (approx. 15 minutes).
