Description:
Monday, February 11th at 6:30pm – One Book One Bozeman Lecture with MSU Historian Bob Rydell “Fair Fiction: Worlds’ Fairs in American and European Fiction”

From their beginnings with the London’s Crystal Palace Exhibition in 1851, world’s fairs have excited the imagination of novelists, including Charles Dickens, Hans Christian Andersen, Charles Baudelaire, William Dean Howells, Marietta Holley, E. L. Doctorow, and Erik Larson. This “illustrated” (to use the nineteenth-century term) talk will address the intersections of ideology, utopia, and fun.
