Tipp City Public Library will welcome award winning author Carrie Bebris as she leads the opening event in the library’s Jane Austen Adult Book Discussion at 7 p.m. on Monday, June 23.
Bebris is a perfect fit to lead this discussion. She has focused a great deal of her writing career on furthering the adventures of some of Austen’s most well-known characters. In fact, her novel Pride and Prescience, which featured Austen’s Pride and Prejudice characters, was named in the top five mysteries of 2004 by Library Journal, according to her biography at www.carriebebris.com.
Beyond her fascination with Austen’s work, Bebris has proven herself a multi-faceted author. She has two fantasy novels to her credit, freelances for Better Homes and Gardens and other publications, and she has also had success as an editor. For her Tipp Library visit, Bebris will lead a discussion of Austen’s classic, Emma. She will also share her thoughts on Austen’s enduring popularity. Copies of the book are available now at the front desk, and everyone is welcome. Registration is requested.
The Jane Austen Adult Book Discussion series will continue on July 28 with Sense and Sensibility and on August 25 with Northanger Abbey. Tipp City Public Library is located at 11 E. Main St., and the telephone number is 667-3826. Find the library online at www.tippcitylibrary.org.
