November 7th Newspaper Column

We’re in full Jane Austen celebration mode here at the library this week and next. Tonight (11/7) we will be screening an Oscar-winning film version of Sense and Sensibility. Saturday we welcome actress Debra Ann Miller for a noon performance of “Jane Austen Speaks!” to be followed by tea. Many thanks to the library friends, foundation members, and staff who are helping make these events possible. Austen Fest continues with the Constant Reader Book Club discussion of Northanger Abbey on Tuesday at 3:30 (open to all Austen enthusiasts). Tuesday night brings a presentation by Ripon College Professor Emeritus Doug Northrop on issues of courtesy in Jane Austen’s novels. Two additional films and a heritage dance demonstration wrap up the festivities next weekend. More details here next week or at any time.

We have a new artist of the month for November – Lynn Jarvenpaa, lately of Green Lake, currently of Oshkosh. Lynn’s watercolor paintings are on display in the meeting room through the end of the month.
