Literature Through the Ages-The Lost Generation


Literature Through the Ages-The Lost Generation takes place on Tuesday, November 05, 2019 from 7 pm to 8 pm at Ritter Public Library in the Group Study Room.

Literature doesn't mean the same thing to everyone, but like with many art forms, we cannot image a world without it. Whether you like those 1000 page tomes or dime store pulp fiction, there is always one genre each and everyone one of us can fall deep into its imaginative world.

Each month we will take a look a small chunk of the literary landscape, and in the tradition of the Socratic method we will avoid the stuffy lecture and engage in a fun and lively conversation. So don't be afraid to bring your opinions.

A group of writers and artists found their way to Paris during and after World War I and changed the landscape of the arts forever. You may have heard of a few of these folks: Fitzgerald, Hemingway, Stein and many more, but their time in Paris can easily be qualified as one of the defining benchmarks in the history of literature. Join us as we discuss this so-call Lost Generation and the immense impact their writing had and still has on today's readers.
