In a Vermont Humanities Council "First Wednesdays" Lecture, Amherst College Professor Ilan Stavans explores the Spanglish and its political clout.
Pulitzer Prize winner Joseph Ellis shares his view that the politically active late eighteenth century was a time of triumphs and tragedies. All of which contributed to the shaping of our burgeoning nation. This Vermont Humanities Council "First Wednesdays" lecture was presented December 5, 2007 in Manchester.
