Meets the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 pm.
December 5: Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser
This epic of urban life tells of small- town heroine Carrie Meeber, adrift in an indifferent Chicago. Setting out, she has nothing but a few dollars and an unspoiled beauty. Hers is a story of struggle, from sweatshop to stage success, and of the love she inspires in an older, married man whose obsession with her threatens to destroy him.
