A Discussion of "The Jane Austen Project" by Kathleen A. Flynn

Bluestone Lane cafe

Have you ever wanted to travel through time and spend a day in Jane Austen's world? Perhaps "The Jane Austen Project" can give us a glimpse. This 2017 novel is about two researchers who must time-travel in search of one of Austen's unpublished novels. I can't wait to see how Kathleen A. Flynn brings together science fiction and literary research in this unique, "Austen-adjacent" book. Let's meet on the second Sunday in February at 1 PM at Bluestone Lane Cafe located by the Guggenheim Museum on Fifth Avenue. Happy reading! Alicia

Note: Please update RSVP or message me if you can't make it. After two no-shows, you may be removed from the group. This is to be fair to those people on the event waitlist. Thank you. Alicia
