All RHS parents are welcome to join us Friday, Dec. 2, to compare and contrast Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld. Eligible is part of the Jane Austen Project, which asked six popular contemporary authors to create modern revisions of Jane Austen’s six complete works, and Sittenfeld’s update is both fresh and familiar. Didn’t read one (or both) of the books? No worries—join us anyway for lively discussion and tasty snacks!
- Jan. 6—The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild and/or When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi (read either or both)
- Feb. 3—Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled Us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars by Nathalia Holt (the 2017 Lake Oswego Reads selection)
