The ‘Emmeline’ challenge

Brighten your winter with Charlotte Smith’s 18th-century novel “Emmeline” — a book Jane Austen read! To kick off our month-long discussion of the novel, Dr. Elaine Bander will reprise her 2020 AGM talk that connects Austen’s early works with the fiction of Smith, a bestselling novelist of her time. Two discussions of “Emmeline,” facilitated by Dr. Bander, will follow. No exams, just chat! Here’s the schedule:

Feb. 13 @ 4pm EST: Dr. Bander’s presentation

Feb. 20 @ 4 pm EST: Discussion of “Emmeline,” Volumes 1-2

Feb. 27 @ 4 pm EST: Discussion of “Emmeline,” Volumes 3-4
