MAIN BOOK SELECTION FOR FEBRUARY: Sa. 16 @ 11a -- AGE OF INNOCENCE by E. Wharton

Join us Saturday February 16 at 11 am at the SOUND CAFE' coffee house -- 2700 Chartres St. in the Marigny. (Pass Cake Cafe' & Bakery and go 2 more blocks. Corner of Port St., one block after Franklin Ave.)

Our Main Selection for the month of February is the 1920 novel "THE AGE OF INNOCENCE" by Edith Wharton.

Just after the Civil War, New York social elites Newland Archer and May Welland announce their engagement. The reader is ushered into a world of exclusiveness in everything from clothing to housing to manners. The princely picture is punctured by the arrival of the unconventional and young Countess Ellen Olenska.

****

About 270 pages pages.

Used copies at Amazon for a penny shipping. $1 on Kindle. New copies available in any book store.

Watching as a group the 1993 Martin Scorsese movie version with Daniel Day-Lewis is a possibility.l

    Do you post the books more in advance somewhere that I'm not aware of? A week seems like a very short amount of time to locate a book and then read it so you can show up at the meeting.
