Books That Shaped America: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

« Back
Please join the University Library and the School of Professional & Extended Studies for a community dialogue on America's favorite ghost story – Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. This seasonal favorite was also one of the first books by a U.S. author to gain international popularity. The discussion, led by Professor Lewis Grossman of the Washington College of Law, will cover topics such as the story's message about capitalism and why there is so much description of food. All members of the American University and greater Washington, DC communities are invited. Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to have read the book. Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free and RSVP is not required.
