Enjoyed reading your remarks in the Alan Binder interview! Depressing though they be.

Seizing this moment to run something up your flagpole. I belong to a Meetup reading group--usually only about 10 people in attendance--called Bay Area Jane Austen. This year we are alternating between Austen novels and related fiction and nonfiction: we've done an Austen biography, The Mysteries of Udolpho, First Impressions by Charlie Lovett, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and Frederica by Georgette Heyer, in addition to Northanger Abbey, Persuasion, and (in September) Emma. I have been pushing to have one of our alternative selections be Pen and Prejudice, and we are tentatively planning to read it for our October meeting. If it is the final selection (we'll know in early September), would you be interested in attending the meeting? The group is very enthusiastic about the idea of the added dimension it would bring to have the author present to answer questions, talk about motivation, etc. The meetings are informal and held at a restaurant in Lafayette. I realize it's only a handful of people, and you may feel squeamish about the idea in any case (I know I do; they've been wanting to subject me to this treatment for a while). Do let me know what you think:
