Please join us this September for the first of our two Classics Discussion Series selections for the fall.
Emma by Jane Austen
This might just be the ultimate romantic comedy, written by one of Britain's most beloved authors. Full of twists, turns, and lots and lots of meddling (and who doesn't love meddling?!), this novel tells the story of the lovely but completely mischevious Emma, a woman who is so intent on arranging happy relationships for her single friends that she is not at all concerned with finding the perfect man for herself. That is, until the moment she realizes that she may have fallen for someone, too! Austen's book, classic in its ability to stand the test of time, was the inspiration for the popular '90s flick, Clueless.
On Monday, September 27 at 2 PM, watch the enchanting, delightful, and critically acclaimed film that helped make Gwyneth Paltrow a movie star. (Run Time: 121 Minutes; Rated PG)
Then, on Thursday, September 30 at 3 PM, join us for afternoon tea in our Classics Room on the 2nd Floor. We'll discuss the movie, the book, the author, and the adaptations. Plus, we may meddle a little, too!
(And save the dates as our Classics Discussion Series continues in November with Breakfast at Tiffany's: Film screening - Monday, November 8 at 2 PM; Book discussion of Truman Capote's novella - Thursday, November 11 at 3 PM.)
