PHOTO COURTESY NANCY CHAPIN

Saturday Afternoons at 603, a series of programs at the Vachel Lindsay Home, continues Saturday, July 6, with a 45-minute presentation by Nancy Chapin of Chatham on early literary clubs in Springfield. Chapin, a member of one of the oldest of these organizations, has done extensive research on the topic. Such clubs, some still in existence today, included the Anti-rust and Sunnyside groups. Vachel Lindsay’s mother Catharine, sister Olive, and wife Elizabeth were all either members or guest members of one or more of these literary organizations over the years. Light refreshments follow.
