For those of you, who, like me, wanted to become better acquainted with Edith Wharton's work, I've decided to host a read-along of her 1921 Pulitzer Prize winning novel: The Age of Innocence.
I'll also be using this title to fulfill my requirement in the Pulitzer Prize category of the 2011 Classics Challenge hosted by Sarah Reads Too Much.
Want to know more about the title? Click here.
The novel is divided into two sections: Book One and Book Two. These sections are roughly under 200 pages each. I've decided to stretch this out the entire month of February so you can choose to take it up whenever you wish.
The read-along will begin on February 2, 2011 and will end on March 2, 2011.
Book One will be our topic for discussion during the first group post. Accordingly, Book Two will be our topic for the second, and final, group post on March 3rd.
Please make sure to scribble notes and highlight your favorite passages to share with other participants.
I'll be posting random thoughts between posts, but don't worry-- no spoilers!
Thanks to Brenna at Literary Musings for helping create the icon you see heading this post, as well as showing interest in such an event. Make sure to follow her site along the way as the read-along progresses!
