Suzette Henke, English professor and Thruston Morton chair of literary studies, will talk about why modern scholars consider the author’s mental distress an affliction of genius and will compare Woolf’s reported symptoms with those of institutionalized patients at the time.

The Thursday luncheon talks begin at noon in the University Club. Reservations are required, with $14 payment in cash or check. To reserve a spot, contact Janna Tajibaeva at 502-852-2247 no later than the Monday before each event.
