Join us for the Friends of the Library book discussion group! February's selection is "Main Street" by Sinclair Lewis. Copies of book discussion selections are available to check out at the library while supplies last.
"Main Street" is the 1920 novel by Sinclair Lewis that tells the story of Carol Milford, a liberal, free-spirited young woman from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Carol meets and marries Will Kennicott, a doctor who convinces her to move back to his small hometown of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. While there, Carol finds the smug conservatism of the town objectionable and sets out to try and make the town a little more progressive, with little effectiveness. A satirical gem, "Main Street" is Sinclair Lewis' classic portrait of small town midwestern American life.
