200 Years Since Jane Austen – Lunch & Talk

On July 20th, the Bath Priory is having a lunch and talk on, well, Jane!

From the event page:

Join Dr Moira Rudolf for an afternoon discussing Jane’s family background, her five years (1801-1806) in Bath, preferred entertainments, allies and love(s), focussing particularly on the two ‘Bath Books’: Northanger Abbey (drafted 1798/99, originally titled Susan) and Persuasion, her last complete novel, begun some seventeen years later, after she had already lived in Bath. Moira will also draw upon Jane’s lively, gossipy letters.

The event begins at noon BST and costs £50.00 per ticket.
