Libraries at Bard College presents

Saul Bellow at Bard

Sunday, May 5, 2013

[Saul Bellow at Bard]
Saul Bellow's son Gregory will discuss his new memoir, Saul Bellow's Heart, with particular attention to the time Saul Bellow (1915–2005) taught at Bard (1953–1954). Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Pulitzer Prize, and the National Book Award (three times), Bellow lived in Tivoli and wrote two of his best-known books there: Henderson the Rain King and Herzog

Quoted in Time magazine, Bellow declared: "One year at Bard seemed like ten. No one knows the demands a progressive school makes upon a teacher."

Accompanied by his two brothers, Adam and Dan, Greg will lead a literary/historical discussion of Saul Bellow's years at and around Bard.
