PageTurners: Pride and Prejudice

Tuesday, Sep 10, 2013 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

pride and prejudicePageTurners celebrate the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice with a discussion of the classic. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. There are many, many editions available—including ebook editions that are in the public domain. For added fun, take a look at Claire Tomalin's wonderful biography, Jane Austen: A Life. The New Yorker called it "Brisk and sparkling—a page turner, in fact."

And, be sure to check out the events for Jane Austen Day, Sunday, September 29 with a talk by author Rachel Brownstein on her book Why Jane Austen?

Note: This is the second Tuesday of the month.

For copies of the book, phone 203-291-4821. New participants always welcome.
