Southern Idaho Region: Birthday Tea
Featuring Claire Bellanti
Join us for our 24th Annual Tea celebrating Jane Austen's Birthday where Claire Bellanti will present, “’You Can Get a Parasol at Whitby’s:’ Circulating Libraries in Jane Austen’s Time”. Circulating Libraries of the 18th and early 19th centuries were an important source of books to Jane Austen and a strong influence on her writing. The illustrated talk addresses how these libraries developed and functioned as well as how they are used in Jane Austen’s novels.
Tickets are $25 per person ($20 for JASNA members). Reservations and prepayment required by November 22. For more information, please email Karin Holland.
This event is being partially funded by a grant from the Jane Austen Society of North America.
