"Miss Anne In Harlem: The White Women Of The Black Renaissance" By Carla Kaplan

    Ten years ago, literary scholar Carla Kaplan released an acclaimed edition of the letters of Zora Neale Hurston.

In the course of researching Hurston's life, Kaplan became curious about the white women who were in Harlem in the same period as Hurston, women who risked family exile and social ostracism to be part of the artistic and political movements of the Harlem Renaissance.

Now, Kaplan has published a cultural history of those women called Miss Anne in Harlem: The White Women of the Black Renaissance. Carla Kaplan is an award-winning professor and writer who holds the Stanton and Elisabeth Davis Distinguished Professorship in American Literature at Northeastern University. She will be speaking at Odyssey Bookshop in South Hadley tomorrow night.
