Lansverk, a specialist in British literature, will speak about why Austen's novels are more popular now than ever. He will explore whether nostalgia, genius, or something else is behind the Austen phenomena. Viewing or reading Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" and "Sense and Sensibility" is recommended for salon participants.
Talking Books Salons will be held the first Tuesdays of February, March and April. Borders Books in Bozeman, the MSU English Department and the MSU College of Letters and Science sponsor the salons, which center on literary topics of interest in a social and informal setting. Speakers have not been set for the March and April salons.
