Join us as we continue our literary journey with American novelist and short-story writer Kate Chopin. A St. Louis native, she began writing after becoming a widow. Kate was writer of many short stories which were published widely in major publications. However, she is most famous for her literary works titled: "The Awakening." The novel is about the sexual and artistic awakening of a young mother who abandons her family, against the confines of New Orleans social conventions and gender assumptions. Causing a fire storm during it's publication, it was met with harsh criticism because of its treatment of feminine sexuality. It was rediscovered in the 1960s and has since become a standard of American literature, appreciated for its sophistication and artistry. She has written many stories which is many are still read today. Tune in as journey with the one and only Kate Chopin. Stay tuned and keep it locked.
