http://lewistownillinois.org/wp/event/traveling-exhibit-100th-anniversary-of-spoon-river-anthology/

This free-standing exhibit tells the story of the internationally known Spoon River Anthology. No other volume of poetry made such an immediate impact, both positive and negative, and few since have been so influential.

 

The new style of literary expression introduced by former Lewistown resident Edgar Lee Masters had a powerful impact on its readers and is now regarded as one of the classics of American literature. Set in the fictional town of "Spoon River", characters speak from beyond the grave to tell their life stories

 

The exhibit also discusses the uproar created by Spoon River Anthology in Masters's former hometown. Local people immediately recognized that the "fictional" town of "Spoon River" was not so fictional and that many of the Anthology characters were recognizable as their friends, neighbors, relatives, and even themselves.

 

This event will run April 30 to June 5. Come check it out!
