Details: Edith Wharton’s first classic novel, set among the hypocrisy of fashionable Gilded Age New York society. Lily Bart attempts to secure her future by acquiring a wealthy husband, as is expected of her, but a romantic indiscretion results in her downward spiral into debt and dishonor. Join us for a tale of classic tragedy, showcasing the stifling limitations imposed upon the women of that generation, their treatment as consumer items in a man’s world, and how any spark of independence can lead to ruin and desperation. This novel is the basis for the motion picture starring Gillian Anderson and Dan Aykroyd.
