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.

"This 1932 Pulitzer Prize winning novel is still a standout today. ‘I can only write what I know, and I know nothing but China, having always lived there,’ wrote Pearl Buck. In The Good Earth she presents a graphic view of a China when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings for the ordinary people." – provided by publisher

Come share a lively discussion with us. This month's selection is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration necessary.

“An audacious, darkly glittering novel about art, fame, and ambition set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, from the author of three highly acclaimed previous novels. 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
