Linda Selman wants to share some exciting news about what she will be doing during the months of November & December in 2017 that directly involves Edith Wharton.
The East Hampton Library out in East Hampton, Long Island will present an Author Talk with Linda Selman on November 4, 2017, from 1-3 pm. Ms. Selman will share passages from her non-fiction suspense narrative The Inadvertent Researcher: A New York Story (“It’s astonishing AND exhilarating and inspiring to see how a single project or passion can elicit so much glory!” David Masello, Executive Editor MILIEU Magazine) as she uncovered valuable pieces of long-forgotten literary, art and social history when asked to adapt for the stage Edith Wharton’s first New York novella “Bunner Sisters”(written in 1891, but not published until 1916) which appeared Off-Broadway at the Metropolitan Playhouse’s Gilded Age Festival as well as at the National Arts Club, the New York Society LIbrary, the Salmagundi Club with excerpts at The Players. The adventure story is replete with twists and turns, mistaken identities, and lost lives. A pursuit that culminates with the reappearance of a leader in a movement that changes the tastes of America and establishes cultural standards still revered today: Henry Cuyler (H.C.) Bunner – Alexander Hamilton’s great-nephew.
