Jane Austen’s Juvenilia, Volume the First & The History of England

August 15, 2015 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM PDT

Join us as we explore the delightfully fresh and often hilariously funny “juvenilia” of Jane Austen – works written between the ages of 12 and 17. The juvenilia are exuberantly expressive tales of sexual misdemeanor, female drunkenness, and violence. They are characterized by exaggerated sentiments and absurd adventures.

Please read “Volume the First” and “The History of England,” the latter written when Jane was 16, with illustrations by Cassandra.

You can find these books separately or as part of the full Juvenilia set (Volumes 1-3, plus the History). Check bookstores, on-line, and at Amazon.

Tea will be served. If you can bring brunch items to share, that would be lovely.
