Bilingual Book Group opens its reading year with the first solo novel by the preeminent female writer of 19th century France, George Sand (Aurore Dupin).

Indiana is a powerful tale of a young Creole woman struggling to find her identity.  The novel carefully dissects social conventions of the 19th century; dealing with themes of marriage, gender, race and class equality.  

‘J’ai écrit Indiana avec le sentiment non raisonné, mais profond et légitime, de l’injustice et de la barbarie des lois qui régissent encore l’existence de la femme dans le mariage, dans la famille et dans la société.’ - George Sand.
