Sen. Huey Long of Louisiana, 1935

Warren’s 1947 Pulitzer-winning novel chronicles the rise and reign of politician Willie Stark—based on Louisiana governor and senator Huey Long—who stirs class resentments and mesmerizes crowds. Middlebury professor Deborah Evans examines how the novel addresses the moral challenges of balancing populist desires with the lure of personal power and fame. Books available to read in advance or afterwards (not required).

Hosted by the Manchester Community Library.
