The Catch-Up Book Club: Persuasion

22 June 2021 6:00pm

Persuasion | Jane Austen
with Emerita Professor Jocelyn Harris, English & Linguistics
Discussion will involve Austen’s two ‘cancelled’ chapters, not included in the published work, which can be read/downloaded at


The Catch-Up Book Club, presented by the University Book Shop and the English & Linguistics programme at the University of Otago, is an informal group that meets to discuss classics you’ve heard about, have always meant to read, by writers you might be curious about, or perhaps you really liked the costumes in the BBC miniseries… this is your chance to finally read that classic! Or just too come along and decide whether you actually will…

We meet upstairs* at the HD Skinner Annex, the University Book Shop’s home for the next year… the talk by a university lecturer starts at 6pm, followed by discussion; come along from 5.30pm and meet fellow booklovers and enjoy light refreshments.

RSVP: If you have any questions or to book a seat or two (essential, these evenings are popular and seats are limited) please contact | 03 477 6976

* Lift access available
