Drink tea and eat crumpets as two prominent Jane Austen scholars discuss her life and work to mark the 200th anniversary of her death. George Mason University Professor Kristin Samuelian is the editor of Broadview’s edition of Emma, and has written on Austen and “Managing Propriety.” Amy Smith wrote All Roads Lead to Austen: A Year-Long Journey with Jane, after spending a year traveling Latin America hosting Austen book clubs across the continent, and stumbling onto her own Señor Darcy. This is a paid reception event and the charge covers the cost of tea, drinks, and food.
