Reading Group to Meet Sunday, May 2

After a March meeting at Gary Mitchner’s house, and an April meeting in the elegant eighteenth century parlor of the Stones’ home in Greenville, the Reading Group returns to Jean Long’s home for the last meeting of the year. We will be discussing the last four chapters of Persuasion and comparing the published ending with Austen’s earlier version, which is preserved in manuscript form.

At this meeting we will also be selecting the book to study next year. The selection has become rather narrow. Of the major novels, we have only Sense and Sensibility and Emma remaining. As usual, the Reading Group will meet at 2:30. Jean’s home is at 927 Far Hills Avenue in Oakwood. If you have any question about how to get there, or you do not have a copy of the alternative ending to Persuasion, contact Jean at jtrnlong@aol.com or (937)-298-0436.
