“How quick come the reasons for approving what we like!”  Persuasion, Ch. 2.

Join us for lunch and a very special day with Jane Austen at our kick-off meeting for the 2018-2019 year.

As we continue to celebrate 200 years of Jane Austen’s masterpiece Persuasion, we meet Jane Austen in the midst of her final performance, and hear her reminiscences of a life well-spent.

Actor Deb Miller brings historical women to life by combining her delightful performing talents with scrupulous research. Deb brings an intimate understanding of Austen through her own letters and works, combined with meticulous historically accurate costume and mannerisms to this stirring performance. Presentation is followed by a cozy question and answer period.
