Join us as we welcome the Poet Laureate of Boston, Danielle Legros Georges, to the Eustis Estate. Through the exploration of iconic and influential pieces of literature, Legros Georges asks audiences to consider the historic and evolving definition(s) of what makes one an American. Her talk begins with the question asked by Frenchman-turned-American Jean de Crèvecoeur in 1782, "What is an American?"
