Austen and Bronte make most of the weather

The Classics Book Club have discovered Bronte and Austen have the weather in common. I seem to recall not too long ago reading about the weather as a vehicle for the plot in Austen's works. Now members of The Classics Book Club are discovering the Brontes also used the weather and astronomical occurrences to serve the plot and mood of their novels. The Classics Book Club groups meet in Orange at 12.30pm on Thursday 16 October to discuss Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte and from 5.30pm to talk about Shirley by Charlotte Bronte. The next Cowra meeting will be held on Tuesday 30 September from 12.30pm to 1.30pm to discuss Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and the Blayney group meets on Tuesday 21 October from 11am to 12noon to also talk about Wuthering Heights. For more information about the Classics Book Club contact your branch or download a form from the Reading and Writing page on the CWL website.
