Grapes of Wrath, Walden, Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Slaughterhouse-Five, and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. What some call great American Literature, others deem despicable, immoral, or profane. In this session we will explore works by some of the most notable American authors like Steinbeck, Salinger, Thoreau, Walker, and Vonnegut, and uncover what makes them worthy of contempt by some and celebration by others from the 1800s to today.
