November 12 Book Club Pick: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

The next Book Club meeting will be on Thursday, November 12, to discuss Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Copies are available in the library or on Project Gutenberg, and all are welcome to read and join the discussion.

From Goodreads: "When the wealthy and very eligible bachelor Charles Bingley purchases an estate in the Bennets' small town, he and the beautiful Jane immediately fall in love. But Bingley's arrogant friend Darcy just as quickly alienates Lizzy when she overhears him speaking dismissively of her. These first impressions have lasting repercussions for Jane, Elizabeth, and their whole family. Rich in wit and wisdom, humour and humanity, Pride and Prejudice takes a probing, entertaining look at the nature of love, money, and power in Georgian England."

The other picks for first semester are:
