Book Discussion: Daisy Miller

Join us Monday, March 21 at 7:00 PM for a discussion of DAISY MILLER by Henry James, part of our winter book discussion series. First published in 1878, DAISY MILLER was an immediate popular success and brought James his first fame as a writer. For a time, the eponymous heroine's name became a generic term for any young, flirtatious, American girl. The tale continues to be one of James's most enduringly popular works, in part because readers are often divided on the question: who bears responsibility for Daisy's plight -- she herself, or society? Come share your thoughts. Admission is free and open to the public.

The winter series in American classics will conclude April 18 with a discussion of ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN by Mark Twain.
