Want to rediscover the joys and surprises of great literature? We’re spending 2016 reading and discussing great novels alongside Laura Miller and her fellow Slatesters. In April, Laura and Slate Group editor-in-chief Jacob Weisberg will be talking about Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.
On April 13th join Laura, Jacob, and fellow book lovers in New York for a live conversation on Brontë's great novel and its place in English literature. Hear their conversation, ask questions, and make suggestions about what A Year of Great Books should read next.
