Let's Discuss "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte
from The orphaned Jane Eyre has emerged a fiercely independent young woman. As governess at Thornfield Hall, she’s found her first real home—though it stands in the shadow of the estate’s master, Mr. Rochester, and its haunted halls ring with maniacal laughter. For even the grandest houses have secrets. As much a story about defying convention as it is about coming-of-age, Jane Eyre remains one of the most beloved novels in the English language. Both Gothic and Victorian in its influence and scope, it captures one woman’s determination to live life on her own terms—choosing courage over fear, while finding power in love and compassion.

What we're about

Public Group

So many GREAT books, so little time!

A well written book is like a warm blanket on a cold night or a fine wine that lingers in your memory long afterward. If you are interested in reading (or revisiting) the greatest books of all time, then this book club is for you! We read books widely regarded as the best novels ever written.

The Classic Novels Club will meet in the north metro area, on one Thursday every month from 7:00- 8:30. Meetings will be very casual. All you need to bring is your curiosity and willingness to share your thoughts, ideas and perhaps a favorite paragraph.

Discussions are focused on the book, so please try to read the book prior to attending if possible, but you are welcome to attend either way.

SPECIAL NOTE: We are a true book discussion group. We are always cordial and friendly to everyone, but our members like to read serious books - no fluff ever! - and discuss them in depth with other devoted readers. Our meetings are 90% book discussion, and maybe 10% chit-chat. We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds; we believe that bringing together readers of diverse backgrounds enriches our discussions.
