When Edith Wharton’s novel The Age of Innocence won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize, she became the first woman to be awarded this honor. Set in the social atmosphere of New York City in the 1870’s, this is a story of moral complexity. Newland Archer and Countess Ellen Olenska must make choices based on the rules and values of the society and the desire for individual freedom. Second Readers meets Wednesday, March 21, at 4:30.
