PageTurners Discuss "The Scarlet Letter"

Tuesday, Jul 18, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Join PageTurners for a discussion of The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The book is considered to be his "masterwork". Set in 17th-century Puritan Massachusetts Bay Colony, during the years 1642 to 1649, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism, sin and guilt.
