Fiction Book Discussion

Thursday, February 12, 2015 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
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.
