Champlin to review book for Friends of Hanley Library

BRADFORD, Pa. Isabelle Champlin, a retired professor of archaeology at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, will review the award-winning novel “Euphoria” by Lily King next week.

The program will take place at 7 p.m. Feb. 18 in the Mukaiyama University Room in the Frame-Westerberg Commons. The program is sponsored by the Friends of Hanley Library and is free and open to the public.

Set in remote Papua New Guinea in the 1930s, this is a fictionalized account of the brief collaboration of three real-life anthropologists: Margaret Mead, her then-husband Reo Fortune, and her future husband Gregory Bateson. New York Times reviewer Emily Eakin describes “Euphoria” as “a taut, witty, fiercely intelligent tale of competing egos and desires in a landscape of exotic menace – a love triangle in extremis.”

Champlin’s presentation will also include additional background information on the personal life and research of a brilliant, groundbreaking and unconventional anthropologist.
