Elizabeth Bennett has a great amount of pride in her family - even though they aren't nearly as wealthy as Fitzwilliam Darcy. Darcy, for his part, holds a certain prejudice against those of lesser rank and fortune; Elizabeth is prejudiced against his snobbery. How these 2 can ever fall in love can only be the work of Jane Austen, who masterfully arranges their story, the humorous characterizations, and a caricature of English society. It is a truth universally acknowledged that Austen changed the course of novels with her examinations of ordinary people in everyday life, and Pride and Prejudice stands as entertaining evidence to that fact. -- From the publisher's summary.

Murder on the Orient Express (3/24)

Join us on Tuesday, March 24th, at 7:30 PM, to explore Agatha Christie's classic whodunit, Murder on the Orient Express.
Savor one of the most clever of Christie's suspenseful classics. An American businessman is stabbed to death aboard a luxury train, the Orient Express, snowbound in the middle of Europe. Nothing escapes the eagle eye and quick intelligence of the great Hercule Poirot, and clues abound. Sorting through a dozen perfectly respectable passengers, all suspects, Poirot is tenacious in his pursuit of the truth.

Don't miss other titles in the Hercule Poirot series. -- From the publisher's summary.
