Humanities West Book Discussion: A Pepys Anthology

Join us to discuss the writings of Samuel Pepys, a Restoration-era London civil servant who worked to improve the Royal Navy and eventually became a member of Parliament. The diary he kept as a young man in the 1660s, published in 1825, has made him posthumously famous. Pepys’s diary gives vivid insight into his life and times and includes a first-hand account of the Great Fire of London. The discussion, led by Lynn Harris, will use the edition edited by Robert and Linnet Latham.
