We opened our 2000-2001 seminar season with "Fortunate Pilgrims: Literary
Ethnicity in the 1960s and 1970s," written by Matthew Frye Jacobson and
commented upon by Donna Gabbaccia. The event, co-sponsored by the American
Literature and Culture Series at Harvard University's Humanities Center, was
well attended. We were delighted to see so many of you here, and hope to see
an equally large and lively crowd at our next meeting, which will take place
here at the MHS on Thursday, October 26, at 5:15 P.M.
Marc Shell and Werner Sollors, co-editors of the forthcoming Multilingual
Anthology of American Literature: A Reader of Original Texts with English
Translations, will join us for a discussion on "Multilingualism in the
United States." We are fortunate that many of the volume's contributors,
listed above, will also be able to attend, lending their own perspectives
and expertise to the discussion.
The Society will serve a light buffet supper following the session. Those
wishing to stay and eat must contact Erin Pipkin by telephone at
617.646.0505 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org before Wednesday, October
27 to make a reservation.

the Massachusetts Historical Society and send it to the attention of Erin
Pipkin at the MHS. Participants may also find copies at several area
