The Life & Legacy of J. D. Salinger

Thursday, November 14, 2019

For ages 55+ -- Presented by: Dr. Larry Lowenthal -- Jerome David Salinger, although sparse in his published literary output, remains one of the most admired and studied of all modern American writers. His novel about adolescent rebellion, The Catcher in the Rye, has sold over 10 million copies. Notorious for his obsessive need for privacy, the writer became famous as much for his eccentricities as for his great literary talent. This presentation will explore the quality of Salinger’s art and the connection between his works and his personal life. Presenter Dr. Larry Lowenthal received an M.A. in English Literature from Northwestern and Ph.D. in Drama from NYU. He taught in both the English and Jewish Studies Departments at Northeastern as an adjunct professor. This program supported in part by a grant from the Framingham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and in part by the Rosanne Bergman Trust.
