Tarzan Brown Reading Circle

Our thanks go out to Paulla Dove Jennings and all who participated in our most recent Reading Circle where we discussed the biography of Narragansett marathoner Ellison "Tarzan" Brown. Ms. Jennings' personal insights into the Tarzan Brown story balanced out what was agreed to be a well documented but slightly impersonal account of the athlete. In the course of the discussion, it became clear that the research in Michael Ward's biography would make a great springboard for another author to build upon, perhaps focusing more on Brown's personal, family, and cultural background. Thanks again for making this event a success.
