Austen Book Club: Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen

Austen Book Club: Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen Online

ONLINE EVENTWhether 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 group meets online the second Wednesday of the month.

• This Month's Selection: Mansfield Park, by Jane Austen  Adopted into the household of her uncle, Sir Thomas Bertram, Fanny Price grows up a meek outsider among her cousins in the unaccustomed elegance of Mansfield Park. Soon after Sir Thomas absents himself on estate business in Antigua (the family's investment in slavery and sugar is considered in the Introduction in a new, post-colonial light), Mary Crawford and her brother Henry arrive at Mansfield, bringing with them London glamour, and the seductive taste for flirtation and theatre that precipitates a crisis. 

Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk.
