Her first stop will be on Monday, March 26, where she’ll enlighten students of the Berks campus on the subjects of the Lost Generation and the excitement of engaging in original research.

On Tuesday, March 27 the laureate will travel to Penn State Brandywine where she’ll make a presentation titled, "Searching for Home: American Women Speak Out in Their Letters and Diaries" at the Women's Commission Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. in the Commons Building. Later, at a 4 p.m. reception in 103 Tomezsko Building, Miller will speak on "Searching for the Lost Generation," an informal talk open to the public that will highlight her research in the humanities as related to the Lost Generation artists such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway.

Rounding out the week, Miller will lecture to an anticipated full house at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 29 at Penn State Abington’s Lubert Commons, Lares Building. As an expert on Ernest Hemingway, Miller will discuss the author’s 6000 personal letters and more in “Hemingway in Letters, Literature and Life.” The Abington event is free and open to the public.
