Regular meetings are usually held the second Sunday of every other month, unless a special program dictates otherwise. The information below is subject to change.

Don’t forget to bring contributions to Hookham’s Circulating Library. Austen-related books are donated by members and circulated for $1. You can keep the book or, after reading, bring it back to circulate to others.

Meetings are usually held at either Mamie Doud Eisenhower Library in Broomfield (map) or Standley Lake Library in Arvada (map). But other locations are also used, so be sure to check the meeting notice emailed to you for meeting location.

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.”

April Meeting
Sunday, April 10, 2016, 1:30–3:30 pm
