The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

Date and Time: March 19, 2019, 7:00 PM CT

Location: Overland Park Historical Society, 7590 W 151st St, Overland Park
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Growing Up American
Discussion Leader: Rosemary Kolich

"I keep picturing all these kids playing some game in this big field of rye.... What I have to do," Holden explains, "I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff." Can J.D. Salinger's classic still tell us anything about what it means to be American? Let's start this series by revisiting that too-wise-for-his-age smart aleck Holden Caulfield and his quest for the un-phony.
