Winter 2020 Boston Austen Book Club - Ibi Zoboi's Pride and the Lizzie Bennet Diaries

A Year of Pride and Prejudice Series Finale: Winter 2020 Boston Austen Book Club, Sat, Mar 28 at 2:30pm

The Winter 2020 Meeting of the Boston Austen Book Club will be Saturday, March 28 at 2:30pm. We will meet at our usual spot, the Pleasant Cafe in Roslinale, MA. (Parking lot and public transportation access available.)

The "Year of Pride and Prejudice" Series Finale: Pride and Prejudice Comes to Young America

Since we had a long break between the Fall and Winter meetings, we will be discussing two works at the upcoming meeting: (1) the well-reviewed "Pride" by Ibi Zoboi, and (2) the acclaimed YouTube series, "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries." Both works are interesting, modern, American takes on our beloved classic novel.
