North Shore Page Turners Bookclub: Persuasion

There is a $5.00 charge to participate in our book groups, fully redeemable for merchandise in the store.

We are delighted to welcome the The North Shore Page Turners to the store for their first meeting of 2020, as they discuss the classic Persuasion by Jane Austen. The Page Turners Bookclub is led by Kelly Malitz and is open to the public. Note that this group usually meets on Monday evenings--we have switched to a Tuesday this month due to the store being closed for Inventory on 1/13!

About the Book:

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.
