A bold literary experiment, "Eligible" is a brilliant, playful, and delicious saga for the twenty-first century.

Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master's degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won't discuss. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane's fortieth birthday fast approaches.
Louis County Library Foundation is pleased to present acclaimed novelist Curtis Sittenfeld for a discussion and signing of her latest novel "Eligible" on Tuesday, April 19 at p.m. Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their Cross Fit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs.
