This year marks the 100th year since Sinclair Lewis’ first book “Hike and the Aeroplane” was published.
In conjunction with this milestone, the city of St. Cloud (home to Claude Lewis) has also organized an entire two-month event entitled “Main Street to Eighth Street” — which celebrates the lives of Sinclair and Claude Lewis.
A Sinclair Lewis Film Festival, Lewis Family in St. Cloud lecture and discussion and an Arts and Letters Home Tour of the South Side are all scheduled for the weekend of June 7 – 9 in St. Cloud.
Each Tuesday in May, the St. Cloud Public Library is hosting “The Wit and Wisdom of Sinclair Lewis.”
