CLASSIC BOOKS –  January, 2020
Monday Jan. 27th at 3 p.m. “The Old Wives Tale” by Arnold Bennett – An epic tale that’s considered one of Bennett’s finest works, The Old Wives’ Tale traces the absorbing lives of two very different sisters from childhood to old age. It’s a genuinely engaging read that follows their intriguing individual stories and sees them eventually reunited. The book was voted one of the twentieth century’s top 100 English-language novels by the Modern Library in 1998.- Just as accessible and enjoyable for today’s modern readers as it would have been when first published over a century ago, the novel is one of the great works of English literature and continues to be widely read throughout the world.- This meticulous edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text and is beautifully illustrated with a number of atmospheric historical paintings that reflect the mood of the novel.
