Pride and Prejudice
For some books, it's a pretty big deal when they're still being widely circulated and read 200 years after their release. Then, there are books like Pride and Prejudice, which are so well known 200 years after release that they are not only widely read but adapted to film and TV numerous times—17 times in only 75 years, to be exact. Today, swing by the Free Library for a day filled with fun, free activities created to celebrate the birthday of Jane Austen's masterpiece. Activities include a film screening of the 2005 film adaptation and a literary salon, replicating the literary gatherings of the 17th- and 18th-centuries where writers would gather to exchange ideas. 19th century birthday hats encouraged. —Fiona Lockyer

9am. Free. Central Library, 1901 Vine St. 215.686.5322.

Tues., Jan. 29

Edible Book Party
A sudden urge to make a batch of cookies or bake the perfect cake could come in handy if you’re also a book worm. The Kelly Writers House hosts its second Edible Book Party where every piece of artwork displayed can be devoured—by your mouth, not your mind. Whether a character or scene inspired you, a play on words with a book title popped into your head (the 2011 party had “A Moveable Feast” and “Jane Pear” among entries) or you just want to recreate the cover of a book out of candy and baked goods, your skills in the kitchen will be appreciated. Bake on your own or with a team; all entries are accepted. No need to sign up ahead of time—a last-minute inspiration will do just fine. —Brenda Hillegas

Free. 6pm. The Kelly Writers House, 3805 Locust Walk. 215.746.7636.
