Would anyone be interested in joining a group to read and discuss 19th century literature?
19th Century writers include: Jane Austen , Mary Shelley, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, the Bronte’s, Anthony Trollope, Wilkie Collins, Thomas Hardy, Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Oscar Wilde and many more. Many authors from this date are now available for free on Kindle!
As the 19th century was such an interesting period socially and historically it would be good to read around each book a little – ﬁnding out more about the author or the topics covered in the book – and then sharing what we found out as part of the discussion.
The ﬁrst meeting is on:
TUESDAY 10th NOVEMBER in Freshwater Library – at 7pm.
