Jane Austen Day 2018

If you live near the eastern Pennsylvania region, you may be interested in the local JASNA group’s Jane Austen Day.

The day long event will be held on April 21 at The Merion Cricket Club in Haverford, PA with speakers Lynn Festa, Susannah Fullerton, Whit Stillman*, and Juliette Wells presiding. The theme this year, “The Power of Persuasion,” celebrates the 200th anniversary of the publication of Persuasion.

In addition to the speakers, light foods and drinks will be served and an emporium will be open for your perusal of Austen and Regency inspired gifts and trinkets. Registration is now open but I’ve been unable to find the cost.

(*I must fangirl over Mr. Stillman. I first saw his first movie, Metropolitan** (his modern retelling of Mansfield Park), sometime in the mid-90s and I’ve been in love with him ever since. His work is delightful! He’s also the director who gave us the newly released Love & Friendship.

**I should probably do a review of that flick at some point!)
