You think life is hard? Try living in the Bleak House.


The Jones Library Classics Book Club presents



Disease, poverty, madness, decline, child abuse, not to mention spontaneous combustion and a cameo appearance by a dinosaur, in London, covered in mud, dark with fog, and strangled by an outdated legal system: these are just some of the elements of Charles Dickens’ Bleak House.  Join the Jones Library’s “Classics Book Club” for a great spring read of one of Dickens most ambitious novels. 
Copies of Bleak House are available at the Library’s Reference Desk.
