MONDAY

Double Feature Mondays

6 p.m. Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW. 202-467-4600. www.kennedy-center.org.

WEDNESDAY

Author Talk: Jo Baker

There may already be a few too many reincarnations of “Pride and Prejudice” (including one with zombies), but this one sounds really interesting. Instead of focusing on the Bennet family and their love lives, Jo Baker’s “Longbourn” tells the story of Sarah, an orphaned housemaid in the Bennet home who is striving to understand her place in society and her relationship with a former slave at a nearby estate. Hear Baker talk about her book at Politics and Prose.

7 p.m. Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. 202-364-1919. www.politics-prose.com.
