You can find Jane Austen all over Mentor right now—at the park, your bank, City Hall, your favorite restaurant.
We’ve put copies of Austen’s posthumous masterpiece Persuasion all around town as part of our Austen in Autumn series. These books need not be returned to the library. They are yours to keep forever, if you like.
(If you haven’t read Persuasion, it’s the story of a kind, smart young woman who must decide what to do when a former love reappears in her life after nearly a decade away.)
Adults can also pick up a copy of Persuasion during MPL’s Austen in Autumn Kickoff Party on Thursday evening, Sept. 17, at Little Mountain Brewing Company. (Little Mountain is even releasing a special beer for the event, Austentatious IPA.)
All are welcome!
And that’s just the beginning of our Austen in Autumn activities. We have a free film festival, short film contest, an Austen reenactor, a theatrical performance of Pride & Prejudice, and more.
