The Art of Biography

January 31 – February 3, 2016

Lytton Strachey referred to the art of biography as “the most delicate and humane of all the branches of the art of writing,” adding that “it is perhaps as difficult to write a good life as to live one.” This third CCA of the 2015-2016 academic year will consider biography in general and specific recent biographies through the eyes of their authors.
