Our October Meeting:

Meeting and Discussion: Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. 

Saturday, October 27, 2018. 1p.m. – 4 p.m.  Woodward Park Library, Fresno. Free.

1785996371About the book: During an eventful season at Bath, young, naïve Catherine Morland experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances: flirtatious Isabella, who shares Catherine’s love of Gothic romance and horror, and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney, who invite her to their father’s mysterious house, Northanger Abbey. There, her imagination influenced by novels of sensation and intrigue, Catherine imagines terrible crimes committed by General Tilney. With its broad comedy and irrepressible heroine, this is the most youthful and and optimistic of Jane Austen’s works.

A presentation on the Gothic Novel will also be presented by JASNA members DeAuna Marks and Erin Connor. Light refreshments will be served, so feel free to bring your own tea cup and a snack to share, if you wish!
