Billy Parrott, an NYPL librarian, has a fabulous post about what Sally Draper would have been reading in 1964-65. I have to agree with the commenters who suggested Marjorie Morningstar, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (two of my favorites!), Peyton Place, and the works of e.e. cummings and Rachel Carson.
Today Betsy Bird has a follow-up post with a challenge to identify what Sally is actually reading in photographic stills from the Mad Men TV Show.
Go, check them both out and add your thoughts!
