Brown Book Club: “Persuasion”
Jun 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Brown Book Club will meet in NW DC on Sunday, June 1o to discuss Jane Austen’s Persuasion (fiction, 192 pp,  reprint).   We’ll begin at 6pm with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, June 8 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

“Jane Austen’s last completed novel, marrying witty social realism to a Cinderella love story. At twenty-­seven, Anne Elliot is no longer young and has few romantic prospects. Eight years earlier, she had been persuaded by her friend Lady Russell to break off her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a handsome naval captain with neither fortune nor rank. What happens when they encounter each other again is movingly told in Jane Austen’s last completed novel. Set in the fashionable societies of Lyme Regis and Bath, Persuasion is a brilliant satire of vanity and pretension, but, above all, it is a love story tinged with the heartache of missed opportunities.”

Brown Book Club: “The Handmaid’s Tale”
Jul 8 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

handmaidThe Brown Book Club will meet on Sunday, July 8 to discuss Margaret Atwood’s classic The Handmaid’s Tale (fiction, 411 pp,  1998).   We’ll begin at 6pm with dinner, then go on to discussion.  Please RSVP by Friday, July 6 by contacting the event organizer, who will provide location information. Mention any food allergies, and bring $6 – $8 for the meal.

“In the world of the near future, who will control women’s bodies? Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are only valued if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now….Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, ‘The Handmaid’s Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.'”
