Please join us on Monday, April 22nd at 6:00 p.m. for the program:
Why Are We Still Reading Jane Austen?
Novelist Deborah Lee Luskin will discuss how Austen's novels demonstrate the importance of reading closely, of tempering face-to-face flirtation with the sober reflection of prose, and - most of all - of reading fiction, especially Jane Austen's own.
This is a Vermont Humanities Council Speakers Bureau event, free and open to the public and accessible to those with disabilities.
The Friends of the Lanpher Memorial Library have put together a raffle basket with Jane Austen inspired items, including tickets to see the Lamoille Co. Players production of Pride & Prejudice. Please stop by the Library to purchase tickets.
Lamoille County Players will perform Pride & Prejudice, May 3-5 and 10-12 2019. On Friday, May 3rd and Saturday, May 4th, the tickets are Buy One Get One Free if you use the promo code BOOKS when you purchase your tickets online, or mention the promo code in person. The Lanpher Memorial Library will receive a portion of the proceeds from this promotion. Go to:
