Our Next Gathering:

51w78ugv0cl._sx331_bo1,204,203,200_Meeting and Book Discussion onĀ Emma

WHEN: SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
WHERE: Woodward Park Library Meeting Room, Fresno.
COST: Free and open to the public.

Before she began writing, Jane Austen wrote, ‘I am going to take a heroine whom no-one but myself will much like’ and thus introduces the handsome, clever, rich – and flawed – Emma Woodhouse. Emma is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage; nothing, however, delights her more than matchmaking her fellow residents of Highbury. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for herĀ protegee Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected.

Our second quarter meeting will feature a discussion of “Emma”, as well as an additional presentation related to the novel, a brief meet-and-greet, and light refreshments. Feel free to bring your own mug or tea cup to enjoy!
