We Love Jane Austen

Locust Fork High School Summer Book Club

Come read Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Emma with us!

Whether Jane Austen is an old friend or if you are new to her novels, please join us as we read, discuss and share our love for Jane Austen and her works. Our club is open to LFHS students and graduates, their friends and family members, the LF community and beyond. So, invite your friends, your moms, your aunts, cousins, grandmothers, etc; the more, the merrier.
