Harpers Ferry

The history of Harpers Ferry has few parallels in the American Drama. It is more than one event, one date, or one individual. It is multi-layered involving a diverse number of people and events that influenced the course of our nation's history. Harpers Ferry witnessed the first successful application of interchangeable manufacture, the arrival of the first successful American railroad, John Brown's attack on slavery, the largest surrender of Federal troops during the Civil War, and the education of former slaves in one of the earliest integrated schools in the United States.

Met Live: Die Zauberflote

Freihaus-Theater auf der Wieden, Vienna, 1791. Die Zauberflote a sublime fairy tale that moves freely between earthy comedy and noble mysticism was written for a theater located just outside Vienna with the clear intention of appealing to audiences from all walks of life. The story is told in a Singspiel (“song-play”) format characterized by separate musical numbers connected by dialogue and stage activity, an excellent structure for navigating the diverse moods, ranging from solemn to lighthearted, of the story and score. The composer and the librettist were both Freemasons*the fraternal order whose membership is held together by shared moral and metaphysical ideals and Masonic imagery is used throughout the work. The story, however, is as universal as any fairy tale.

Baltimore: Monumental City

Join Baltimore historian and educator Wayne R. Schaumburg on Monday, October 2 at 7:30 in the auditorium for an illustrated talk entitled "Baltimore, the Monumental City."  With a collection of over 140 public monuments, Baltimore has more than lived up to the famous nickname of "monumental city" first used by President John Quincy Adams in 1827.  Whether to adorn public places or to honor, people, places, and events in history, Baltimore's monuments have fascinating stories to tell.  For example, why are there three monuments to Christopher Columbus, and what is Simon Bolivar, the liberator of South America, doing in Guilford?  Who is John Mifflin Hood, and which monument was said to be built by cigars?  What is the most touched monument in town, and did you know that Baltimore has an official monument honoring every single war in American history?  So, for evening of "monumental" thrills, please join us in October!

Reading Jane Austen in America

Edenforum is pleased to welcome Juliette Wells on Wednesday, October 11 as she presents Reading Jane Austen in America at 7:30 in the auditorium.


Jane Austen's great popularity today, 200 years after her death, stands in contrast to the modest renown accorded her during her lifetime. This illustrated lecture presents the little-known stories of how, and by whom, Austen's novels were first read and appreciated in North America, from the earliest American edition of an Austen novel (Emma, printed in Philadelphia in 1816) to the collecting activities of the twentieth-century Baltimorean Alberta H. Burke.


Juliette Wells is the Elizabeth Conolly Todd Distinguished Professor of English at Goucher. She is the author of two books about Jane Austen and her readers, Reading Austen in America (forthcoming in October 2015) and Everybody's Jane: Austen in the Popular Imagination (2011), both of which highlight Goucher’s exceptional Jane Austen collection and its creator, alumna Alberta H. Burke. For Penguin Classics, Dr. Wells created reader-friendly 200th-anniversary editions of Austen’s novels Persuasion  (forthcoming in December 2017) and Emma (2015). Dr. Wells earned undergraduate degrees and an M.A. at the Johns Hopkins University and the Peabody Conservatory; she received her Ph.D. from Yale.

The Wild Bunch

Easy Rider

The French Connection

The Exorcist


The China Syndrome
