Join MRL in-person or virtually, to discuss "Sister Carrie" by Theodore Dreiser.
Sister Carrie is a classic novel about a young woman who moves to the big city where she starts realizing her own American Dream. She experiences work, love, the pleasures and responsibilities of independence in late-19th-century Chicago and New York. The book depicts the social history of the time honestly, a ruthless nature of capitalism. People use one another, mercilessly, and have no regrets for those who fall by the wayside. The message is a grim one, but the impact of the novel renders it captivating and unforgettable. It has been called the "greatest of all American urban novels."
