Afternoons with Austen: “Sense and Sensibility” (1995)

August 21, 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.

“Sense and Sensibility” follows the story of two sisters, suddenly destitute members of a wealthy English family, who are forced to seek financial security through marriage. Directed by Ang Lee, the film stars Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant. PG. 2 hours, 16 minutes.

The last Afternoons with Austen screening will be on Aug. 28 when “Persuasion” will be featured.
