The Jane Austen* Book Club will celebrate Christmas, Regency Style, on December 15th, 2008 at 6:00 pm in the McIntyre Room, Carnegie Building. We have moved the meeting back one week so some of our recent graduates can visit with us during the holidays. We will read descriptions of Christmas celebrations found in Austen books and other source materials from the Georgian period. We will have music from Jane Austen's own library and a quiz game to test your Austen knowledge. Of course, we will have refreshments and lively conversation. Do join us and discover an English Christmas, before the Victorians went overboard!
* Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist whose realism, biting social commentary and masterful use of free indirect speech, burlesque and irony have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and best-loved writers in English literature.
