The Big Book Club Podcast from Arlington Public Library

Jan 29, 2022

For December we read the 1847 novel by Charlotte Brontë, “Jane Eyre.” Originally published under the pen name Currer Bell, as “Jane Eyre: An Autobiography,” the novel follows the experiences of the eponymous heroine, including her growth into adulthood and love for the brooding Mr. Rochester. 

In January, we're reading “The Eyre Affair” by Jasper Fforde, the first Thursday Next novel. 

Reminder: this is a spoiler-filled podcast. So if you’re not into that kind of thing, read the book first and come back later.
