Live streamed from The Mount, Annette Miller reads “Mrs. Manstey’s View”

Published in Scribner’s Magazine in July 1891, “Mrs. Manstey’s View” was Wharton’s first published work of fiction. The story pits the sensitive Mrs. Manstey, reveling in each blossom and small triumph of nature, against the forces of materialism and greed. The biographer R. W. B. Lewis calls it an “imaginative escape.”

You may know Annette from any number of her incredible performances at Shakespeare & Company, including last summer’s ‘The Waverly Gallery’ which the Berkshire Edge called Miller’s performance “rare” going on to say “it’s the kind of performance you might experience once in a lifetime.” Annette has performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in regional theaters and in film and television, including The Company Men, The Next Karate Kid, and The Eye has to Travel.

The Mount is a Massachusetts Cultural Council UP designated organization welcoming participants of all disabilities. Please contact The Mount at 413-551-5100 or by email, info@edithwharton.org, to discuss accommodations needed to participate fully in this event.
