What Matters in Jane Austen

Winter Weekend 2017 , 

In this last bicentenary session, the academic and author plays with the engaging and entertaining puzzles of the novels and Austen’s life. What are the right and wrong ways to propose marriage? What do the characters call each other, and why? And which important Austen characters never speak? Join us for a delightful celebration of the genius of English literature’s greatest comedian. There will be prizes for best frock coat and bonnet.
