October Meeting Report

October 24, 2013

Kerry Thompson, Dianna Graham, Amy Tams, Jamie Frischknecht, and Jessica Anderson attended our October meeting. Jessica hosted and served apple cider and doughnuts in a nod to the fall weather.

We discussed Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen. We had a good discussion about the book in particular and the period, again, in general. Some of the discussion centered on the romance in the book and how the hero said his feelings began “in gratitude.” We talked about how that was probably more realistic than the way romance is sometimes portrayed in books as instantaneous and dramatic. The general feeling was that this was not our favorite Austen, but it was still a good read.

As always, it was a delight discussing this book and books in general.
