E.B. White topic of First Wednesday lecture

MANCHESTER — The legacy and works of beloved author and essayist E.B. White will be the topic of this month's First Wednesday lecture, to be held Wednesday at 7 p.m. at First Congregational Church in Manchester Village.

Dartmouth professor Nancy Jay Crumbine will share excerpts from White's work in her talk on White (1899-1985), celebrating his versatility and enormous legacy.

From his exquisite essays in The New Yorker to the beloved children's classic "Charlotte's Web," White is still regarded as a master of elegant prose, sophisticated wit, and graceful irreverence.

Crumbine is a poet and Associate Visiting Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at Dartmouth College. She holds a PhD in philosophy and two Masters degrees in philosophy and religion.

The lecture, part of the Vermont Humanities Council's First Wednesdays lecture series, is free and open to the public.
