The Adolescent Hero: A Study of J.D. Salinger's "unheroic" heroes

When: Thu., April 27, 7-8:30 p.m. 2017

J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye is one of the most iconic depictions of adolescence in all of American literature. Often considered the first true picture of the adolescent experience in post-World War II America, Holden Caulfield's experience is both decidedly individual and remarkably universal. However classic Holden Caulfield's experience has become, his story is far from being Salinger's only portrait of the age. Group will meet on 4/27, 5/4. 5/11 and 5/18.
