Academic Council Reveals Summer Reading Book

Summer is almost here… and you know what that means… summer reading!

The Academic Council is super excited to announce your 2012 common book: The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton.  A member of the social elite herself, Wharton reveals the “inside scoop” on upper-class society. Featuring New York City’s social elite in the late 19th century, this Pulitzer Prize winning book is considered one of the great American classics. Through love and scandal, The Age of Innocence leads you through one man’s discovery of who he is and who he really wants to be.

By the end of the summer, can you tell us why the title The Age of Innocence is so ironic?
