Field Notes Book Group

Saturday, June 16, 2018 - 11:00am

The Field Notes Book Group will meet for coffee, snacks and invigorating discussion at the Field Library Gallery on Saturday, June 12, 2018, from 11:00 to 12:30, discussing Jane Austen's classic final novel, Persuasion.

Persuasion features one of Jane Austen's most charming and worthy characters, the quiet, gentle, not flirtatious, not beautiful but warmhearted and competent, Anne Elliott, as she faces the painful prospect of watching the only man she ever loved flirt with and come close to marrying someone else, a younger and more vivacious woman.  The book showcases Austen's trademark wit and understanding of character, and its climax is one of the great endings of English literature.

Copies of the book are available at the Circulation desk.  Come in and pick one up, and then join us for a great read and a lively discussion.
