Morning Reminder: The Billfold Book Club is Discussing the Second Half of ‘North and South’ Next Thursday
Good morning! Hope you all slept well, or that you’re on Pacific Time and are still sleeping.
This is a reminder that one week from today, the Billfold Book Club will be discussing Chapters 26-52 of Elizabeth Gaskell’s North and South. (When I read The Marriage Plot for my other book club, they referred to her as “Mrs. Gaskell,” which felt really weird.)

So be ready to discuss the last half of North and South next Thursday, November 20!
