A Year of Pride and Prejudice: The Final Installment
The Winter Meeting of the BABC will occur in mid-March (exact date TBD). Since we will have a while between meetings, the final installment of our "Year of Pride & Prejudice" will be a 2-part meeting.
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries on YouTubeWe will discuss the YouTube Series "The Lizzie Bennett Diaries" (including all the spin-off series related to Pride and Prejudice).
Young Adult Novel "Pride" by Ibi ZoboiWe will also discuss the acclaimed young adult novel, "Pride" by Ibi Zoboi, which takes place in modern day Brooklyn, with younger African-Americans as the protagonists.
I'm really excited to discuss both these modern American spinoffs of our beloved P&P!!!
Further details will follow. I'll be providing links to all the relevant YouTube series for the Lizzie Bennet Diaries discussion on Vintage-Bridge.com BABC page and on the BABC Facebook page.
