We'll meet at the library to discuss Longbourn by Jo Baker
Jo Baker takes us beyond the drawing rooms of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and reveals the behind the scenes stories of the servants and the gritty day to day events faced by the lower classes in Regency England during the Napoleonic Wars. This novel has many similarities to Jane Austen’s novel, but tells a compelling story of it’s own.

We'll meet at the library to discuss The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Join genetics professor Don Tillman as he systematically attempts to find love using the scientific methods that have always made sense in the lab, but don’t exactly translate to the socially acceptable way to find a mate for life. As Don navigates the social challenges of everyday life living with Asperger’s, he learns that you can’t find love no matter how scientifically you look for it. When love finds Don, it is a whirlwind that he did not see coming.
