August 8th We Will Be Discussing Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility

Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility will be our book for the August 8th meeting and Cristabel will be our discussion leader.  The choice of a work by Jane Austen was doubly motivated by C.S. Lewis's admiration for Austen as an author and by his sense that she and her contemporary Sir Walter Scott stood on one side of what he called The Great Divide and we and our generation stood on the other and were guilty of chronological snobbery.  Reading Austen puts one in touch with a world of manners and high mindedness which we have largely lost.  Come out and discuss this work with us on August 8th at the Harrisonburg Barnes and Noble where we meet from 7:30 p.m. to about 9:00 p.m.
