Book Talk: Maggie Doherty || Radcliffe Institute

The first installment in our summer series of Virtual Radcliffe Book Talks features Maggie Doherty, author of The Equivalents: A Story of Art, Female Friendship, and Liberation in the 1960s, an exploration of fellowship and collaboration among five artists—Maxine Kumin, Tillie Olsen, Marianna Pineda, Anne Sexton, and Barbara Swan—who met in the 1960s at the then-Radcliffe Institute for Independent Study.

Doherty's reading is followed by a discussion with Tomiko Brown-Nagin—dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Daniel P.S. Paul Professor of Constitutional Law at Harvard Law School, professor of history in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, and chair of the Presidential Committee on Harvard and the Legacy of Slavery at Harvard University—and concludes with an audience Q and A.

This event is part of the Virtual Radcliffe Book Talks which explores recent publications whose subjects or authors have a connection with the Radcliffe Institute.
