Eau Claire's Cave Poetess Discussion (April 12 at 4 pm)

McIntyre Library is happy to celebrate National Library Week with a special event from Dr. Stephanie Farrar on April 12 at 4 pm in McIntyre Library's Special Collections & Archives on the library's 5th floor. 

Dr. Farrar will be discussing an undated handwritten booklet of 81 poems from the early-twentieth-century by a woman named Maud Phillips, who also published poetry in The Leader under the pen name Violet Leigh.  

While never a famous poet, Phillips gained considerable notoriety in her community, having been twice committed to a mental asylum against her will as a result of unconventional life choices including engaging in love affairs with married men and her decision to move her family into a cave beside the Eau Claire River.

This event is free and open to the public.
