Pride and prejudices of Jane Austen to be laid bare in Epsom
The pride and prejudices of Jane Austen will be explored in a talk next week.
The Epsom Literary Society is inviting fans of the 19th Century author, whose most famous works include Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice to a talk by Maureen Stiller, secretary of the Jane Austen Society.
The society’s Sue Merchant says: "It is especially topical as this year is the bicentenary of the publication in 1813 of Pride and Prejudice which has become one of the best-loved novels ever written, having sold 20 million copies worldwide and given rise to a number of television and film adaptations and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters and themes."
The talk will be held next Wednesday, November 6, at 7.30pm, at Epsom Playhouse, in Ashley Avenue, Epsom.
Tickets cost £10. Visit www.epsomlit.org.uk or call Elizabeth Mackie on 01737 355300 for more information.
