Love letters from Mount Rushmore

17 January 2018 - 18:00

Lecture in English by Richard Cerasani


Before he became an award-winning author, Dick Cerasani was known as Richard Caine, the actor, probably best known as the villain Bill Watson in the soap opera General Hospital. In an attic he discovered a trunk full of historical objects pertaining to the Great Depression, the building of Mount Rushmore and the events running up to the start of WWII; he found love letters from Mount Rushmore between a young sculptor and his wife, relating their adventures and struggles with separation during an interesting time in US history.
