In August, the book group for mature readers will discuss Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. The novel tells the story of Pip, an orphan who begins life destined to follow in his brother-in-law’s footsteps and become a blacksmith. Once he meets the beautiful but cold Estella, however, he dreams of becoming a gentleman and earning Estella’s love. Amid shifting fortunes as he grows to adulthood, Pip encounters a cast of memorable characters who challenge his ingenuity, courage, and integrity.
