THE BLUE CHIP BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP

The Street by Ann Petry

Thursday, February 2, 11:00 a.m.

The Street, Petry's best-known work, is often compared to Richard Wright's Native Son (1940). While there are similarities between the two novels, particularly in the portrayal of the economic plight of African Americans in northern cities, The Street moves in different directions. Both in its thematic concerns and its depiction of a black female protagonist, the novel is unique and significant.
