schedule & tickets   venue   official site  

N. C. Wyeth's surpassing gift for narrative made him one of the most famous illustrators of all time. But his narrative talents can also be found in the letters that he wrote—letters that captured the mood of the day, the curiosity of a child, the weight of the snow, the wonder that galvanized him as well as the anxiety that could set in.Beth Kephart will explore the autobiographer in N. C. Wyeth and recount a special trip she took to Wyeth's grandson's home, where she held Wyeth history in her hands. The Brandywine River Museum of Art will open at 5:30 p.m. with the program at 6 p.m. and a reception to follow.

Beth Kephart is the award-winning writer of 23 books and has written about memoir and literature for national publications. An adjunct teacher of creative nonfiction and fiction at the University of Pennsylvania, Beth received the 2015 Beltran Family Award for Innovative Teaching and Mentoring. She was named one of the 50 writers celebrated in the year-long Philadelphia’s Literary Legacy exhibit at the Philadelphia International Airport, and passages and photographs from her book Love: A Philadelphia Affair were the subject of a six-month display at the airport in 2016. As the author of Handling the Truth: On the Writing of Memoir and Tell the Truth. Make It Matter, Beth co-founded Juncture Workshops in 2016. Juncture delivers memoir workshops in extraordinary landscapes and produces a monthly newsletter featuring conversations with the top working memoirists of our time. 

This program is part of The Art of Stories presented by PNC Arts Alive—a multidisciplinary celebration of the narrative arts and the ways in which stories are crafted, saved and shared including discussions, performances and opportunities for artistic self-expression.
