Ingrid Graff, a long-time lecturer from
NH Humanities will explain the resurrection of Sherlock Holmes

In one of the most famous reincarnations of all time, Arthur Conan Doyle killed off his world-renowned detective Sherlock Holmes, only to bring him back to life several years later. What caused Doyle’s disenchantment with his creation and what led to his resurrection? Ingrid Graff discusses Doyle’s life and writings and above all his relationship with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. She looks at several of the Sherlock Holmes stories to investigate the intense attraction of the prose, the plots, the places, and especially the undying fascination of the public with the man who became the world’s most famous detective.

Ingrid Graff has been a long-time speaker for the New Hampshire Humanities and is a recipient of the William L. Dunfey Award. She has lectured for many different organizations, including The Jane Austen Society of North America and Road Scholar, and has taught classes for Granite State College. Graff was the school librarian for Gorham, NH for 10 years and won the NHEMA Award for Excellence in Library Services in 2007.
