Community Book Group:
September 11th: Emma by Jane Austen
Emma Woodhouse is one of Austen's most captivating and vivid characters. Beautiful, spoilt, vain and irrepressibly witty, Emma organizes the lives of the inhabitants of her sleepy little village and plays matchmaker with devastating effect.

Here’s a great opportunity to hear Kerry talk about her work and ask her questions: she’s a local author, and has generously agreed to come and talk with us on Wednesday, 9th October from 7-8.30. You’re asked to read Pao, and if possible Gloria and Show me a Mountain, which together make up her trilogy set in Kingston, Jamaica. There’s a copy of Pao in our library.
