*"It Can't Happen Here" by Sinclair Lewis

World Literature Book Club
Event detail

book club coverOn Thursday, January 3, please join our discussion of It Can't Happen Here, the prophetic 1935 novel by Sinclair Lewis. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press. Called "a message to thinking Americans" when it was published in 1935, It Can't Happen Here is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today's news.
