Meet Priscilla Gilman, a former professor of English literature at Yale University and Vassar College and the author of two acclaimed memoirs, The Anti-Romantic Child (Harper 2011) and The Critic’s Daughter (Norton 2023), a best book of 2023 for the Washington Post and a New York Times’ Book Critics’ Favorite Book of 2023. She teaches literature classes for Yale Alumni College, leads book groups, and is a sought-after speaker about literature, education, and the arts. Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, O: The Oprah Magazine, Slate, the Daily Beast, MORE, Redbook, and Real Simple.

Her debut class for Scarsdale Adult School will be Book Discussion: Wuthering Heights (Course 12621), a three session course meeting on Tuesdays from 1:00pm to 2:30pm over Zoom starting June 11, 2024. Ever since its publication in 1847, Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights has shocked and enthralled, bewildered and enchanted readers in equal measure. Take a deep dive into one of the most compelling, enigmatic, and influential novels of all time: a story of passion and obsession, doomed love, innocence and experience, class and social tensions, ghosts and haunting, jealousy and revenge, the power of nature and the natural world. Consider its unreliable narration, its indebtedness to the Gothic tradition and Romanticism, its status as a Victorian novel, and its continuing presence in culture today. Recommended book edition to be listed in the near future.
