All Aboard the Meme Express – Monday, March 16, 2009
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic American novel, The Scarlet Letter, was first published on March 16, 1850. In this story, a young woman (Hester Prynne) was ordered to wear a red “A” at all times, after she was discovered to be an adulteress. Her partner, however, did not bear the same consequences.
Actress Demi Moore starred as Hester Prynne in the 1995 film adaptation of Hawthorne’s novel, The Scarlet Letter.
Today’s Meme Express prompt is:
