Are you interested in Jane Austen books, aswell as other classic literature? Come join Metro Milwaukee's first ever no-pressure Jane Austen Book Club! For Jane Austen aficionados and newcomers as well. We offer a book club for people who want a leisurely read with support from a light-hearted but well read group of ladies (men are welcome, too!) Have you read The Jane Austen Book Club or seen the film? Watched the Jane Austen series on PBS or seen one of the popular Hollywood adaptations? Interested in how modern day challenges can be addressed with wisdom from Austen's and other classics? Simply like to read? Do you enjoy discussing universal themes like love, societal pressures, romanticism and independence? Or do you simply enjoy listening to others pontificate and help bring a new perspective to your reading? Are you ready to let some classic literature into your life? Would you enjoy meeting fellow booklovers in a supportive group designed to help us all delve more deeply and confidently into the beauty (and heft) of the worlds Jane Austen and others have created in their novels? Then this is the book club for you!
As Miss Austen herself said,
"I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!"
- Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice, 1811
Feel free to sign up and then join us for our meetings. All you need to bring to the meeting is a desire to explore the challenging, exciting world of Jane Austen. If you come with an open mind, I promise you an interesting and fun (perhaps even enlightening!) evening together. Ample delicious beverages & healthy (and some not so healthy) snacks will be provided, as well as dinner at some meetings. Feel free to bring your favorite snack or drink to share if you'd like, as well, though this is totally optional. Hope to see you there!
"Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody, not greatly in fault themselves, to tolerable comfort and to have done with all the rest."
- Jane Austen
