      Jane Austen's Birthday Celebration

      Our literary time machine awaits you! Join us for an afternoon in Regency England.

      Period costumes are encouraged. Prizes will be awarded!

      At 1:00 PM, Deidre Lynch, Harvard Professor of English Literature, will give a presentation on ”Regency Social Media: Jane Austen’s Letter-Writing”. Professor Lynch has written many papers on Jane Austen’s fiction. She is also an editor of the Oxford World’s Classics edition of Jane Austen’s Persuasion and, most recently, of an illustrated and annotated edition of Mansfield Park, published by Harvard University Press.
      In addition to her Jane Austen body of work, Lynch edited an edition of one of the most widely assigned textbooks of English literary history, The Norton Anthology of English Literature.

      After Professor Lynch's presentation, join us for an afternoon of tea and card games that might have been played in the parlor of a Regency home.
