Reading Women Book Group: "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen

6/28/14, 2:00pm - 3:00pm

I know your secret. I know that you've missed the untempered wit and vivacity of Elizabeth almost as much as you long for the undeniable charm of Mr. Collins. Lets take a trip back to Hertfordshire and revisit an old favorite with a new perspective by examining the subversive feminist subtext of this beloved novel. Does Elizabeth really have to date her falling in love with Darcy from when she first saw his beautiful grounds at Pemberley? Why on earth did Charlotte Lucas accept Mr. Collins? Just how rich does having ten thousand a year make a person, anyway? (Hint: very.) Copies of the book are available for checkout one month prior to the meeting. Small meeting room.
