September 11th Our Book Will Be Persuasion by Jane Austen

Jane Austen's Persuasion is our book for September. Our discussion leader will be Stephen. C.S. Lewis identified the time of the Waverly novels by Sir Walter Scott and the Jane Austen novels of manners as the point of a great divide between what we now think of as the modern world and a world that was very different, one which was not swarming with spin and deception perhaps. You can get a sense of Lewis's perceptions by reading his wonderful inaugural address at Cambridge, "de descriptione temporum." HERE

Join us for an evening of discussion as Stephen leads us into Jane Austen's world.
