Jane Austen — Great Scenes Neglected. Members will choose a scene from any of the novels which has perhaps not gotten the attention it deserves, for whatever reason. If they select one from EMMA, so much the better, since it’s her year. They can read part, or all of it if it’s short, and tell the group why it struck them as a neglected scene. And, if possible, it should not be an "iconic" scene (although that remains somewhat subjective).
If there's time, we'll discuss a thought-provoking article in the New Yorker called “Charlotte Lucas’s Choice.”
Sunday, April 10, 2016, 1:30–3:30 pm
