August 21: Jane Austen in Scarsdale by Paula Marantz Cohen
Beit Midrash at TJC • 7:30 PM
This is the bookclub rescheduled from March 2018. Cohen tackles Austen's final novel, Persuasion, about first love getting a second chance. At age 21, Anne Ehrlich was persuaded by her family to break up with her poverty-stricken boyfriend, Ben Cutler. Thirteen years later, Anne is working as a guidance counselor at a competitive high school when Ben, now the well-known founder of a travel guide series, walks back into her life.
Multiple copies of our selections are available at the Princeton Public Library on the "Book Club" shelves. (NOTE: The fiction Book Club shelves are on the first floor, but the non-fiction Book Club shelves are upstairs on the second floor.)
