The stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle have inspired generations of readers devoted to Sherlock Holmes. Dr. Richard Caplan, an authority on Sherlock Holmes, recently published a book concerning Doyle's famous detective. This special interest in the subject also allows exploration of life in Britain at the start of the twentieth century, as well as providing much enjoyment. Using his background in medicine and his love of literature, Dr. Caplan explores the persisting phenomenon of the great detective's astounding longevity.

This program is made possible by funding from Humanities Iowa and the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is free and open to the public. If you are a person with a disability who requires special assistance, please call 319-377-3412 in advance.
