Booked for Supper’s next meeting will be Thursday, August 13, at 8 PM, The Pride Center, when this novel will be discussed.

The Age of Innocence
By Edith Wharton
Edith Wharton (1862–1937) wrote carefully structured fiction that probed the psychological and social elements guiding the behavior of her characters. Her portrayals of upper-class New Yorkers were unrivaled. The Age of Innocence, for which Wharton won the Pulitzer Prize in 1920 (the first woman to win the Prize), is one of her most memorable novels.
At the heart of the story are three people whose entangled lives are deeply affected by the tyrannical and rigid requirements of high society.
