Sign up for "The Age of Innocence"

The Andruss library of Bloomsburg University will conduct a series of reading and discussion sessions on Edith Wharton’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Age of Innocence, on April 1, 8, 22 and 29, 2010 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Library’s Schweiker Room. The sessions will be led by Dr. Ferdâ Asya, Associate Professor of English.

The reading and discussion sessions are free and open to Bloomsburg University students, faculty, and staff and the members of the surrounding communities.

The registration to attend the reading and discussion series will be open from March 15 to March 22, 2010 at the Circulation Desk, First Floor, Andruss Library. Registering participants will receive a copy of the novel and a Reader’s Guide.

Sponsored by The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the reading and discussion series is a part of the project, The Big Read. The Big Read is an initiative of the NEA, designated to restore reading to the center of American culture. The Big Read will bring together partners across Columbia and Montour counties to encourage reading for pleasure and enlightenment.
