Reading Jane Austen
Guess who is reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice? They are getting ready for the next Jane Austen Book Club meeting to be held at Cowra Library on Friday 11 May at 11am. Come along to learn more about the book and, of course, talk about Darcy!
Pride and Prejudice was originally entitled First Impressions. It was written between 1796 and 1797, and heavily revised before its publication in 1813. It is the most famous of Austen’s novels. It is an inversion of the classic Cinderella fairy tale, when the hero, Fitzwilliam Darcy, first sees the heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, at a ball, he refuses to dance with her. Come along to join in the discussion.
Orange Jane Austen Club meets on Friday 11 May at 12.30pm to chat about Northanger Abbey.
