Finding H.D. is a year-long series of events celebrating Bethlehem-born feminist, modernist poet, memoirist and novelist, Hilda Doolittle.
Finding H.D. was launched last Fall -- and continues this Spring with events listed in the attached brochure. Please distribute to students, colleagues, friends and neighbors. Finding H.D. is a wide-ranging public humanities endeavor -- a community effort to explore who we are as a city by exploring the life and work of the most influential artist born and raised here in Bethlehem.
