Afternoons with Austen: “Persuasion”, Princeton Public Library

Wednesday August 28, 2019
3:00 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.

Sally Hawkins stars as the protagonist Anne Elliot and Rupert Penry-Jones plays Frederick Wentworth in this British television adaptation. Eight years prior to the film’s beginning, Anne was persuaded to reject Wentworth’s proposal of marriage. Now 27 and unmarried, she re-encounters Wentworth, who has made his fortune in the Napoleonic Wars and is looking for a wife — anyone but Anne, whom he has not forgiven for rejecting him all those years ago.
