Adventurous Spirit: Edith Wharton
Edith Wharton's Morocco is a special tour abroad offered by The Mount, a cultural center that preserves Edith Wharton's former Massachusetts home. The study tour is scheduled for October 13-25, 2007 and is designed to retrace globe-trotting writer/decorator Wharton’s 1917 journey through Morocco. Highlights will include admission to private palaces and gardens, the red and white cities of Rabat and Salé, and Marrakech. Cost is $7,500.
This month Rizzoli is publishing another re-issue of Wharton's 1897 book, The Decoration of Houses, co-authored with architect Ogden Codman, Jr.
