Join us as we start the year with Elizabeth Von Arnim’s Enchanted April.

It begins one cold, rainy February afternoon soon after the end of World War I when Mrs. Arbuthnot and Mrs. Wilkins come across an advertisement for a villa in Italy to rent for the month of April. They raid their meager nest eggs, find two more women – the formidable Mrs. Fisher and the unspeakably lovely but bored Lady Caroline Dester – to help defray costs, and set off for their dream of sunshine and beauty. At San Salvatore, remarkable changes occur.

Elizabeth von Armin portrays these transformations in wickedly dry British humor interwoven with descriptions of the lush, soul-stirring terrain of San Salvatore. The effect is refreshing, charming, and romantic.–Erica Bauermeister

Books will be available at the Circulation Desk.

Snow date: Tuesday, January 24th – same time and location.
