Ticket Price: Free

Join us for a discussion about Edith Wharton’s 12th book, The Age of Innocence, published in 1920. 

This novel is about a man, Newland Archer, and his marriage to May Welland which takes place in New York City in 1870. This romantic novel takes many twists and turns and is compounded by Archer’s new-found love for Countess Ellen Olenska.  

Notedly, this book won a Pulitzer in 1921, and it’s a wonderful get-away book while in quarantine.

Sidenote: The October Book Club was led by Mia’s Book Club Leader Debra Hegstrom and Docent Suzanne Zander. The Grace of Silence: A Memoir by Michele Norris is a timely history of Michele Norris’ family and life as it evolved from Alabama to South Minneapolis. This book is a wonderful read and eye-opening historical experience of the character of Minneapolis in the 1950s.
