Description:
A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
In keeping with tradition, the adult book group will discuss a children’s classic at the December meeting.  This year, the group will meet on Wednesday, December 29 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett.  Copies of the book will be available at the Library. Burnett is the author of three children’s classics, A Little Princess, Little Lord Fauntleroy, and The Secret Garden.  In A Little Princess, Sara Crewe is left at an English boarding school by her doting and wealthy father.  When he is presumed dead, her life changes dramatically from wealth to poverty and abuse.  In case anyone is wondering about the relevance of reading a 100-year-old children’s book, listen to Sara, “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses.”
