Event description

Description

Love reading? Each month we discover different authors, topical themes and thought-provoking reads. The group usually meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 5.30pm to 7 pm at Orange City Library. We will be talking about the classic novel Main Street by Sinclair Lewis.

Satirising small town life, Main Street is perhaps Sinclair Lewis's most famous book, and led in part to his eventual 1930 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Here is the story of Carol Kennicott, who, to be accepted, must adapt to the ways of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. This ground-breaking novel attacks conformism, commercialism, moneygrubbing, and the decline in what Lewis saw as the American ideals of freedom and respect for individuality.
