May 2019 Meeting
May 19- "In Memorium: Scenes from Northanger Abbey" by Alana Gillett and Company
Former JASNA-Greater Louisville Program Coordinator, Librarian, and member, Jackie Johnson, loved Henry Tilney. He was her favorite leading gentleman amongst all of Jane Austen's novels. She taught our membership about Tilney and deepened our appreciation for Northanger Abbey. Jackie along with JASNA-Greater Louisville members and friends performed short scenes from Northanger Abbey in November of 2010. Pictured above is Alana Gillett as Catherine Morland, Brian Cushing as Henry Tilney, and Jackie Johnson as Eleanor Tilney from the November 2010 costumed staged reading.
Jackie Johnson passed away in December of 2014 and every day our membership misses her wit and wealth of knowledge about Jane Austen and her novels. Join us on May 19th at 2 p.m. as we honor her memory with the recreation of the same scenes from Northanger Abbey as presented 9 years ago. A new cast of JASNA-Greater Louisville members and friends will be filling the roles. Come see why Jackie loved Tilney most of all!
Afternoon Tea will be served after the presentation. The meeting will be held in the Audubon Room at Locust Grove (561 Blankenbaker Ln., Louisville, KY).
