New virtual “classics” book club – don’t worry – it isn’t high school English class!
Join us in this session to discuss and celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton. Many people may already have these books on their shelves at home but there are loads of ways to download classic eBooks and eAudiobooks for free online. The Age of Innocence is available widely for free online, one source is Standard eBooks.
Edith Wharton’s home, The Mount in Lenox, Massachusetts, has a page devoted to the novel’s centennial and will be launching a special online exhibit on the book later in May.
Other resources for classic books include (though there are many more!) Project Gutenberg, a volunteer effort to provide free digital copies of public domain books, and LibriVox, which does the same except it produces audiobooks instead of digital text.
