Through five Pulitzer winning novels, this series looks at how authors have depicted the striving to better oneself and achieve the American dream – and how, despite our efforts, we often end up unfulfilled or clashing with other elements of society.
Discussion will be led by Martin Haber who has an extensive background in teaching humanities curriculum to all ages.
