Afternoons with Austen: “Emma” (1996)

August 7, 2019, 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Enjoy a cup of tea and a film adaptation of a Jane Austen novel on Wednesday afternoons this summer when the library presents Afternoons with Austen. For true Austen fanatics, “Addicted to Austen” calling cards will be distributed at each screening to be stamped by staff. Those who attend three or more screenings will be entered in a drawing to win a prize pack of copies of all of the films shown in the series.

Directed by Douglas McGrath, the 1996 adaptation of “Emma” describes a year in the life of Emma Woodhouse, a congenial but naïve young woman who thinks of herself as a romantic matchmaker in her small community in early-19th-century England. Gwyneth Paltrow, Toni Collette, Alan Cumming and Ewan McGregor star. PG. 2 hours

Upcoming Afternoons with Austen screenings include:

Aug. 14: “Love & Friendship” (2016)

Aug. 21: “Sense and Sensibility” (1995)

Aug. 28: “Persuasion” (2007)
