SUNDAY, January 22nd @ 2pm: Tea Time w/ Jane Austen

More from Sense and Sensibility: the lives and loves of the Dashwood sisters: prudent Elinor, expressive Marianne, with the ever adventurous young Margaret and their Mother the widowed Mrs. Dashwood along with them. The novel follows the young ladies and their Mother to their new home, a meager cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience love, romance and heartbreak.

Jane Austen wrote the first draft of the novel in the form of a novel-in-letters sometime around 1795.  The novel may be read as a parody of the full-blown romanticism and sensibility (now "sensitivity") that was fashionable around the 1790s.

Curl up with a nice cuppa aorund the library fire and relax with Miss Austen and her ladies in love.  Presented Live in voice.
