The Harvard Square Book Circle, our in-store book club, will discuss Elizabeth Gaskell's classic novel, Cranford.

From the author of North and South and Mary Barton, Cranford is a standalone publication of Elizabeth Gaskell's best-known work, with a critical introduction by Patricia Ingham. Cranford depicts the lives and preoccupations of the inhabitants of a small village—their petty snobberies, appetite for gossip, and loyal support for each other in times of need. This is a community that runs on cooperation and gossip, at the very heart of which are the daughters of the former rector: Miss Deborah Jenkyns and her sister Miss Matty, but domestic peace is constantly threatened in the form of financial disaster, imagined burglaries, tragic accidents, and the reapparance of long-lost relatives. When men do appear, such as 'modern' Captain Brown or Matty's suitor from the past, they bring disruption and excitement to the everyday life of Cranford.
