Jane Austen Book Club: Eligible, by Curtis Sittenfeld Online

ONLINE EVENT. Whether you're new to Jane Austen or an avid Janeite, you'll have fun in this inclusive group for all who love Jane Austen.

The Club will meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

But "first impressions" can be deceiving....
