The Hound of the Baskervilles is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous adventure featuring Sherlock Holmes. Written after Doyle supposedly killed Holmes in a titanic struggle with Professor Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls, The Hound invites all manner of conversation and speculation as to its creation and enduring appeal. Tim Johnson, curator of the world's largest collection of Sherlockiana at the University of Minnesota, will explore some of the many facets surrounding this tale. The program is co-sponsored by the Batavia Public Library Foundation.
