PageTurners – So Big, written by Edna Ferber

Two of the PageTurners’ book clubs will be reading and discussing So Big, written by Edna Ferber. The Monday afternoon group will meet March 23 and the Thursday group will meet March 26.
A classic Americana story, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and widely considered to be Edna Ferber’s greatest achievement, So Big is a classic novel about turn-of-the-century Chicago. It is the unforgettable story of Selina Peake DeLong, a gambler’s daughter, and her struggles to stay afloat and maintain her dignity and her sanity in the face of marriage, widowhood, and single parenthood. A brilliant literary masterwork from one of the twentieth century’s most accomplished and admired writers, the remarkable So Big still resonates with an unflinching view of poverty, sexism and the drive for success.(3.98* Good Read Classic).
This book is the one classic we have chosen to read.
Those of us who have read it earlier in our lives will enjoy revisiting the book and looking at it from a more mature perspective.
Others will be reading it for the first time and we will all discuss why it is considered a classic.
