Join moderator Kathy Schultenover for a discussion of Sherwood Anderson’s book Winesburg, Ohio. Parnassus Book Club meetings are free and open to anyone. Buy the book, read the book and join the discussion.
George Willard is a young reporter on the Winesburg Eagle to whom, one by one, the inhabitants of tiny Winesburg, Ohio, confide their hopes, their dreams, and their fears. This town of friendly but solitary people comes to life as Anderson’s special talent exposes the emotional undercurrents that bind its people together. In this timeless cycle of short stories, he lays bare the life of a small town in the American Midwest.
