Speaker Series – Louis Bromfield with John Anderson

April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Join us at the Freer Home as we welcome John Anderson who will give a first-person portrayal of Louis Bromfield.

Literature comes to life in the performances and scholarship of John Dennis Anderson, an accomplished oral interpreter who presents biographical performances of America’s greatest authors. As a Professor Emeritus at Emerson College, Anderson has taught and continues to publish in the academic field of performance studies and serves as a consultant on living history performance. Since 1994, Anderson has been developing and presenting living history (or Chautauqua) performances as the authors Henry James, William Faulkner, Robert Frost, Washington Irving, Ernest Hemingway, Louis Bromfield, Henry Beston, and Lynn Riggs. He has performed in over a dozen states, in venues from the Boston Athenaeum to the Seattle Public Library. No stranger to Ashland, Anderson has performed several of these characters at the annual Ashland Chautauqua event at the Myers Memorial Band Shell.
