      Common Reads—Cabin Fever: "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman & "The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe

      Join us as we dive into two tales of cabin fever in "The Yellow Wallpaper" and "The Tell-Tale Heart." Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s story focuses on a woman forced by her husband to remain at a rented summer home to alleviate a bout of depression after giving birth. Edgar Allan Poe’s tale depicts a narrator driven to insanity by their obsession with an evil eye, a murder, and a heart. These stories push readers to confront the limits of the human spirit when confined in the same space day after day. Discussion will be led by Frick staff members Lisa Viscusi and Kelly McMasters.

      A program link will be sent to all registered participants.
