Join us May 9, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss, Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
A sensitive orphan, Jane Steele suffers first at the hands of her spiteful aunt and predatory cousin, then at a grim school where she fights for her very life until escaping to London, leaving the corpses of her tormentors behind her. After years of hiding from the law while penning macabre “last confessions” of the recently hanged, Jane thrills at discovering an advertisement. Her aunt has died and her childhood home has a new master: Mr. Charles Thornfield, who seeks a governess.
A satirical romance about identity, guilt, goodness, and the nature of lies, by a writer who Matthew Pearl calls “superstar-caliber” and whose previous works Gillian Flynn declared “spectacular,” Jane Steele is a brilliant and deeply absorbing book inspired by Charlotte Brontë’s classic Jane Eyre.
Ask at the front desk for a copy of this best-selling novel or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your copy. And be sure to mark your calendars for these upcoming book discussions:
6/13/17–Inside the O’Briens by Lisa Genova
