Drop in and cozy up to a livestream fireside reading of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper, narrated by your USAHS Librarian.
"A groundbreaking feminist masterpiece and one of the most exquisite horror stories in American literature Diagnosed by her physician husband with a “temporary nervous depression—a slight hysterical tendency” after the birth of her child, a woman is urged to rest for the summer in an old colonial mansion. In a private journal, the woman records her growing obsession with the 'horrid' wallpaper of the mansion. Her quest, however, leads not to the truth, but into the darkest depths of madness. A masterly use of horror techniques and a scathing indictment of patriarchal medical practices, The Yellow Wallpaper is a true American classic." - Description from ProQuest.
