Current Book - March 2016

  • Winesburg, Ohio
    by Sherwood Anderson.
    Hosted by: Judy Richardson

    "Before there was Hemingway, Fitzgerald, or Faulkner, there was Sherwood Anderson, whose quirky book, Winesburg, Ohio (1919), remains an endearing gem of modernist storytelling. This group of interlinked tales experiments with form and plays with the cadences of the American vernacular. I'm drawn to its underlying sense of aching affection for the "twisted apples" the lonely, misfit townsfolk groping for something beyond mere words."

    Judy Richardson, senior lecturer in English and program coordinator for American Studies
