Oct. 19: Austen's Mansfield Park & Two Recent Film Versions: Purist or Purist Radical with Dr. Karen Hadley - There has been much debate on whether or not there is even a decent film adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel. Dr. Karen Hadley, of the University of Louisville, examines two such film adaptations. Will a definitive version be crowned? You'll have to join us to find out!
Nov. 16: The Education of Young Women with Anne Fischer - What did Fanny Price teach herself in her cold, little school room? Was her education different than what her cousins, Maria and Julia, received? What exactly was a young lady expected to learn during the Regency? Greater Louisville JASNA member Anne Fischer will make sure we are well educated on this matter.
Dec. 14th: The Gardens of Mansfield Park with Kim Wilson-
We close out our year with our Annual Jane Austen Birthday Tea. And who better to join us than celebrated Janeite author Kim Wilson to help us give our final celebration by taking an in-depth look at the importance of gardens in Mansfield Park.
