Join Illinois Central College’s “Between the Lines” program as it explores Sinclair Lewis’ novel, It Can’t Happen Here, Can It?, on Tues., Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Arbor Auditorium on the Peoria Campus.

In 1935, with Fascism on the rise and on the march around the world, Lewis wondered how it might come about here, too. Even 80-some years later, this novel, which was the first American winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, remains plausible and frightening. Join ICC Professor Jim Sullivan for the discussion.

“Between the Lines” is a lecture series presented by the faculty members of the English, Humanities and Language Studies Department at ICC. The goal of the series is to offer literary presentations which will interest students and people in the community as well as promote reading literacy and scholarly study.

The programs are free and open to the public.
