Jill Lepore, author of The Secret History of Wonder Woman, will give a lecture on “How Wonder Woman Got into Harvard” on October 30th at 4:15pm at the Knafel Center in Cambridge, MA.
Wonder Woman is the most popular female comic-book superhero of all time. Aside from Superman and Batman, no other comic-book character has lasted as long. Like every other superhero, Wonder Woman has a secret identity. Unlike every other superhero, she also has a secret history. In this illustrated lecture, Lepore lifts that veil of secrecy to reveal that Wonder Woman’s past lies at Harvard and Radcliffe.
