Margaret Fuller forum

On Wednesday, Oct. 23, Gloucester UU minister Rev. Jenny Rankin kicks-off a three part series of learning ‘salons’ focusing on the brief but shining life of Margaret Fuller. A 19th century woman with a 21st century mind, the trailblazing Fuller was the first female foreign correspondent. A literary critic, writer, champion of women’s education and frontline feminist, she was a Transcendentalist and confidant of Emerson, serving as editor on his influential publication, “The Dial.” The series is free, and continues Wednesdays, Oct. 30, and Nov. 6, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at the UU Church, Middle Street. To register, contact Karen Rembert at 978-283-3410 or gloucesteruu@earthlink.net.
