ASHLAND — A Plymouth State University professor of Victorian and modern English literature will give a talk about the enduring popularity of Sherlock Holmes in a talk next Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Ashland School cafeteria.
Ann McClellan's illustrated talk, titled "(Not So) Elementary, My Dear Watson: The Popularity of Sherlock Holmes," looks at one of the most popular fictional characters of all times. Arthur Conan Doyle's character has been portrayed in over 230 films in several different languages, as well as in numerous television shows and literary adaptions.
This free program is mostly funded by the N.H. Humanities Council and is sponsored by the Friends of the Ashland Town Library, who will serve refreshments.
