Everything you Ever 
 Wanted to Know about
British Literature

The presentation will define and illustrate the development of the British novel from its beginnings to the present.

Authors will include Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Tobias Smollett, Fanny Burney, Jane Austen, Walter Scott, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Samuel Beckett, Graham Greene, Doris Lessing, Graham Swift, Jeanette Winterson, and J. K. Rowling.
Discussion, too.
Come get well-rounded.
Afterward, join us for more conversation at Callahan's or the Green Mill.
