The Portico Library
Uncle Tom’s Cabin, though abolitionist and written to show the horrors of slavery in America, is today often known for racist stereotypes as well as the author’s political stance. At the time of publication, it was condemned as slanderous in much of the American south. In this ‘Key’, Stowe presents the evidence that she used to write the novel and Chris Bamber will talk through some of the aspects of the book.
The first of our Book in Focus talks with member of staff or member of the Portico Library to explore some of the less well known books in our collection.
