"Finding Her Voice" Book Club: “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë
Rediscover the classic novel by Charlotte Brontë.
Christie Weininger, executive director, will lead this discussion.

Read and discuss a variety of books about women’s history and impact during this special book club. This month, the club is reading “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Brontë. When “Jane Eyre” was published in England in 1847, (under Brontë’s male pseudonym, Currer Bell), it was ground-breaking in so many ways. Contemporary critics described Jane and the novel as “coarse” and “unfeminine.” Yet, the novel soared in popularity. Set against the backdrop of 19th century England and an intriguing mystery, the novel features a strong female as its central character. Jane Eyre is an orphan, raised by a cruel relative who sees Jane as nothing but a burden. Society and Jane’s family dismiss her from their ranks because she is poor, small and unattractive. Jane, however, uses her plucky, indomitable spirit and sharp wit to carve out her own place in the world.
