Motherhood & Jane Austen Book Club

Join us again in 2015 as we read through more classics through the lens of motherhood. 

How it will work

It’s pretty simple. Join our Facebook group, and start reading Les Misérables.

That’s the first novel we’ll be reading this year. Over the next six (it’s a long book!) months we’ll have casual discussions in our Facebook group.

The group is also a fun place where we share tidbits of Jane-ish lore and fun and encourage each other in our pursuits of reading the classics.

The point of this group was originally to read these books through the lens of motherhood, but you don’t have to be a mom to join.

    I really need brushing up on Jane Austen’s novels. After years the movies are weaving in with the books and the books are weaving in with the movies. Then, I’ve read a few prequels. I’m mostly familiar with Pride and Prejudice. Would like to become familiar with the other novels especially Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park. Haven’t read her life story. Would love to read it.

    I’m also new to your blog – found my way here from your The Art of Simple post about lessons from Mary. Like Nicole, I would love to know about a 2015 book club since I missed out on the Austen book club.
