Join Kutztown University Assistant Professor of English Sandra M. Leonard in an exploration of the world of literary crimes. Did Edgar Allan Poe plagiarize “The Raven”? Did Oscar Wilde covertly collaborate on illicit erotic novels? Was a group of Romantic poets guilty of treason? Each session will focus on a different instance of literary crime, and will ask participants’ help in solving cases of forgery, plagiarism, and more.
