GRETCHEN GERZINA - Frances Hodgson Burnett: A Garden of One's Own

Professor Gerzina's talk about Burnett's gardens and their importance to her fiction.

Frances Hodgson Burnett grew up in Manchester without the consolation of a garden. As an adult, she exulted in creating gardens of her own, first in Kent and later at her house on Long Island, New York where she wrote her most famous novel The Secret Garden. Professor Gerzina's talk will be about Burnett's gardens and their importance to her fiction.
