From the Library – The Classic Book Discussion Group Will Match Up With Jane Austen’s “Emma” in September 2022
Jane Austen was an extremely popular writer in her day, but many people believe that she has more fans today than she did back then.
The Classic Book Discussion Group will put that theory to the test in September 2022 when they read Emma, her story of a young matchmaker:
BOOK DESCRIPTION: Often considered to be Jane Austen’s finest work, Emma is the story of a charmingly self-deluded heroine whose matchmaking schemes often lead to embarrassment. Her own great fortune has blinded her to the true feelings and motivations of others and leads her to some hilarious misjudgments. But it is through her mistakes that Emma finds humility, wisdom, and true love. Told with the shrewd wit and delicate irony which have made Jane Austen a master of the English novel, Emma is a comic masterpiece whose fanciful heroine has gained the affection of generations of readers.
An in-person discussion of Emma will be held on Thursday, September 29, at 3:00 PM. If you’d like to attend, please register now through our Event Calendar.
Copies of Emma are currently available on our 1st Floor on the Book Discussion Shelf (just behind our New Books shelves).
