4th Thursday Book Club Reads Sense and Sensibility
Celebrate Women's History Month with the 4th Thursday Book Club at Central Library. Join us to discuss the classic novel Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen and view the Academy Award-winning film.
In her first published novel, Jane Austen presents us with the subtle portraits of two contrasting but equally compelling heroines. For sensible Elinor Dashwood and her impetuous younger sister Marianne the prospect of marrying the men they love appears remote. In a world ruled by money and self-interest, the Dashwood sisters have neither fortune nor connections. Through her heroines' parallel experiences of love, loss, and hope, Jane Austen offers a powerful analysis of the ways in which women's lives were shaped by the claustrophobic society in which they had to survive.
