Event Details

Winter 2019 Book Discussion Series, "Classics Retold" Longbourn by Jo Baker "Pride and Prejudice" told from the servants' perspective. The Bennets and Mr. Darcy take a backseat in this look at the Longbourn estate as seen through the eyes of minor characters from Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. The real drama unfolds downstairs where a young housemaid falls for the newly hired footman. Others such as Mr. Collins, Mr. Wickham, and cook/head of servants Mrs. Hill take center stage in this evocative look at the lives of the lower classes in 19th century England.
