KFPL Live: Jane Austen's Bad Boys

Jane Austen’s work is experiencing something of a resurgence during the pandemic, as romance must again deal with social distancing.  And just as in Regency England, it can be difficult to tell if a potential partner is a wise choice or a rogue.  Learn how Austen’s heroines select a suitor while fighting their own romantic urges in this online talk by Dr Erin Weinberg.  Saturday, January 30 at 2 p.m.  Register now to receive the Zoom link.
