Merritt Moseley, a professor at University of Carolina-Asheville, will lead a series of discussions surrounding the works of beloved author Jane Austen at the Waynesville library.
A novelist whose reputation has never declined, critic Brooke Allen called Austen “a woman …for every decade. Though her books are almost two hundred years old, they gleam with an immediate freshness.”
The series will cover three Austen favorites: Sense and Sensibility on May 17; Pride and Prejudice on June 14; and Persuasion on July 19. The discussions will be held from 4-6 p.m.
The books are free and will be available April 30 at the Waynesville branch. Contact the library office to sign out a book. There is no charge for a book, but the three book series can be purchased for $10. Refreshments will be served.
“Let’s Talk About It” is made possible by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, in partnership with the North Carolina Center for the Book, a program of the State Library of North Carolina.
