Join us for breakfast and a lively discussion of Austen's timeless classic, Pride & Prejudice. Complex relationships and human character flaws are at the heart of this compelling read. How do the book's themes translate into today's societal issues?
Facilitator's Perspective |
I've never been able to fully explain why Pride & Prejudice is so important to me. Yes, its themes are somewhat universal and yes, Jane Austen's writing is brilliant. But there is something more; the book and characters become what each reader needs them to be... soothing, mired in conflict, feminist, traditional, demure, argumentative. Elizabeth and Darcy enter our world or we enter theirs, and we are absorbed in their story, which is ours.
