Books as Therapy

Mary M. Mahoney, a doctoral student in the Department of History at the University of Connecticut, will discuss the history of bibliotherapy (the use of reading to treat mental and psychological disorders) from World War I to the present. Light refreshments will be served.

This program is part of World War I and America, a two-year national initiative of The Library of America presented in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National World War I Museum and Memorial, and other organizations, with generous support from The National Endowment for the Humanities.
