Event Overview

Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis was published in 1925 and won a Pulitzer Prize in 1926. Set in the beginning of the 20th century in the fictional midwestern state of Winnemac, the novel follows the education and career of the titular protagonist, Martin Arrowsmith, as he progresses through medical school, into private practice, and on the frontlines of a pandemic. We will convene to discuss the book, raise questions, share observations, and draw parallels between the fictional world of Arrowsmith and our modern, pandemic-wracked world on The Scientist's brand new Social Club Facebook Group and in a September 25th webinar attended by two special guests, The Scientist's editorial staff, and members of The Scientist Social Club, who have been reading the book for the past several weeks.
