Just as literature and art is in a sense a mirror of our culture, so too are our advertisements. They are all stories we tell ourselves and in turn shape our view of ourselves. Our guest this week is Nathanael T. Booth, who has a doctorate in American literature and whose area of emphasis is small towns in mid-20th century American literature. We explore how advertising and marketing helped shape small town America, it’s current effects on the American small town and marketing, advertising, and sales in American literature.
