misc_none 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM Evening Book Group: Cranford, by Elizabeth Gaskell   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: West Windsor Staff    609-799-0462   
   

Cranford depicts the lives and preoccupations of the inhabitants of a small village: their petty snobberies, appetite for gossip, and loyal support for each other in times of need. This is a community that runs on cooperation and gossip, at the very heart of which are the daughters of the former rector: Miss Deborah Jenkyns, and her sister, Miss Matty. Domestic peace is constantly threatened in the form of financial disaster, imagined burglaries, tragic accidents, the reappearance of long-lost relatives, and Lady Glenmire, who shocks everyone by marrying the doctor. When men do appear, such as “modern” Captain Brown, or Matty’s suitor from the past, they bring disruption and excitement to the everyday life of Cranford.

We ask that you register; however, walk-ins are welcome. Registration begins on May 22; call 609-799-0462 with questions or to register.
