1. Create a Web site to introduce The House of Mirth to other readers. Design pages to intrigue and inform your audience, and invite other readers to post their thoughts and responses to their reading of the novel.
2. Write your own short story sequel to The House of Mirth. Imagine what Lawrence Selden's character will do after the death of Lily Bart. Will he change? Will he recognize that Gerty Farish loves him, reject the stuffy behavior of the wealthy class, and marry her?
3. Imagine you are the leader of a large, televised book club. You are interviewing Edith Wharton for your television audience. What questions would you ask?
