Jack London in Hawaii
Paul Theroux, travel writer and novelist, explains how Jack London's experiences and observations in the Hawaiian Islands still resonate today, based on Theroux's own experiences and observation as a 30-year resident there. This pairing of speaker and subject has particular relevance at The Huntington, as the Library's holdings include the literary archives of both authors. Theroux will sign copies of his book Figures in a Landscape: People and Places following the lecture. This program is the Ridge Lecture.
