Eligible Book Cover

Pride and Prejudice Book CoverTwo books, two centuries, two familes and sisters
Come share a lively discussion with us! This month's selections are Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Copies of the books will be available for checkout at the front desk prior to the discussion date on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration necessary.

Eligible: “Returning with her sister, Jane, to their Ohio hometown when their father falls ill, New York magazine editor Lizzy Bennett confronts challenges in the form of her younger sisters’ football fangirl antics, a creepy cousin’s unwanted attentions and the infuriating standoffish manners of a handsome neurosurgeon.” – provided by publisher

Pride and Prejudice: Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That makes her sound like an insufferable goody-goody, but the truth is she's a completely hip character, who if provoked is not above skewering her antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally sharp – but always polite –18th century wit. The point is, you spend the whole book absolutely fixated on the critical question: will Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy hook up?

Mendelssohn-copyright nickolae/Fotolia.comMozart-copyrightnickolae/Fotolia.comThe name Mozart is synonymous with the word prodigy. He certainly displayed incredible talent as a composer, pianist and violinist at a ridiculously young age. Mendelssohn is usually ignored in the conversation about prodigies, but he was no less extraordinary and topped Mozart in at least one way. He was composing masterpieces as a teenager, several years before Mozart wrote anything comparable. Jeffrey Engel will compare the two youngsters and let you decide who was the more remarkable.

As the camera became more available to the public during the mid 1800s, photography began to affect the art world. With the Hudson River School as a starting point, ArtScapades will show us how artists incorporated the use of photography in their artistic process, enabling them to create ever more dramatic paintings of a young growing America and its people, including the country’s expansion westward. ArtScapades presents three quintessential artists, Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins. Seating is limited, so registration is requested beginning August 16, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman, of ArtScapades, began teaching art appreciation in 1998. They have presented at libraries and museums in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, and Florida.

One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve … Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.” – provided by publisher
