Tuesday Night Book Club: Edith Wharton’s The Custom of the Country

March 14, 2023 @ 7:30 PM EDT

Free

Join us for Tuesday Night Book Club! Hosted by Monmouth University’s Ken Womack, each month we’ll explore a different novel. All you have to do is Zoom in and join the discussion!

This month’s novel is Edith Wharton, The Custom of the Country.

First published in 1913, Edith Wharton’s The Custom Of The Country is scathing novel of ambition featuring one of the most ruthless heroines in literature. Undine Spragg is as unscrupulous as she is magnetically beautiful. Her rise to the top of New York’s high society from the nouveau riche provides a provocative commentary on the upwardly mobile and the aspirations that eventually cause their ruin. One of Wharton’s most acclaimed works, The Custom Of The Country is a stunning indictment of materialism and misplaced values that is as powerful today for its astute observations about greed and power as when it was written nearly a century ago.

When you register you will be provided the meeting link to join the conversation.
