#Bookhour: The Age of Innocence

#Bookhour Relaunch – Edith Wharton, The Age of Innocence (1920)

On 24 January we relaunched our Twitter-based book discussion, #Bookhour, with Edith Wharton’s classic The Age of Innocence.  The date, Wharton’s birthday, was particularly fitting for a discussion of one of the author’s most successful and engaging texts.  We were fortunate enough to be joined in the relaunch by our friends from the Transatlantic Literary Women Network;  Dr Laura Rattray, Anna Girling, and Chiara Bullen.  With their help, the conversations ranged from a powerful defense of the inimitable Ellen Olenska to a slight skewering of the ineffectual Newland Archer.  You can catch up on all of the discussions below.
