Today we talked about Upton Sinclair's famous novel, The Jungle.
*The Progressive Era (which I don't see as progressive)
*Factory conditions in meat packing industry
*Upton Sinclair's purpose for writing this book
*Banned and censored books
*An article that Sinclair write to the NYTimes regarding the "disappearance" of his book from libraries in Chicago & St. Louis, two huge meat packing cities (CLICK HERE to read the article. Very interesting.)
Think about THIS: Sinclair CHANGED EVERYTHING with a book. Hmm. What kind of power is that??
