As a kick-off to the spring program, "Sheboygan Reads Jane Austen featuring Carrie Bebris," Mead Public Library will offer a Jane Austen Film Festival on five Saturday afternoons at 1 p.m. The screenings will be held in the library's Rocca Meeting Room and are available, free of charge, to teens and adults.

The first screening will be held Feb. 16, featuring the 2005 adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice" starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen.

"Emma," starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor, will be shown Feb. 23. "Sense and Sensibility," with Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and Hugh Grant, is set for March 2. The final two screenings were originally featured on Masterpiece Theatre. They are "Northanger Abbey" with Felicity Jones and Carey Mulligan, on March 9; and "Miss Austen Regrets," a drama about the lost loves of Austen's life, set for March 16.

The 2013 Sheboygan Reads program will feature the book, "Deception at Lyme" by Carrie Bebris, who writes the "Mr. & Mrs. Darcy Mystery" series.

Many Austen-related events are scheduled for April and May as part of the program including a book discussion, Regency dance demonstration and instruction, British Naval history presentation, one-woman Jane Austen performance, Regency letter-writing program, film screenings of "Persuasion," programs with Bebris, and a tea event. More information will be available later this month at the library and online at www.meadpubliclibrary.org. Sheboygan Reads is funded by the Mead Public Library Foundation.
