Jane Austen visits you from the autumn of 1815. Her first three novels, Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, and Mansfield Park are published, and Emma is complete.  Jane visits with you at this, the most vibrant and hopeful time of her life.  Drawing from her letters, juvenilia, and novels, this 45-minute performance delves into the personal life of one of the most beloved and intriguing novelists of the 19th century. Jane Austen speaks about her childhood in Steventon, her brothers and beloved sister Cassandra, and her writing. Learn about her exotic cousin Eliza, her mentor and friend Madame LeFroy, and the loves and losses that shaped her life and informed her perception of the world.  Suitable for both the casual reader of her novels and the most devoted “Janeite”. By the end of the presentation, the audience will know more about Miss Jane Austen the woman, as well as the author. The presentation is followed by a Question & Answer period.

Attend a general meeting to learn how you can support the library through volunteering and FUNdraising.  No long-term commitments — volunteers are needed for one to two hour shifts for fundraising events.
