Twilight Shopping Featured Speaker- Bonnets at Dawn Pub Trivia Tournament


JASNA-Greater Louisville is pleased to announce for your entertainment during Friday evening Candlelight Shopping…the ladies of the podcast Bonnets at Dawn and their renowned Pub Trivia Tournament! Bonnets at Dawn have hosted their Pub Trivia’s at the Brontë Parsonage and The Elizabeth Gaskell House in England, and will be bringing the excitement and competition to the 11th Annual Jane Austen Festival for its State-side debut!

Bonnets at Dawn is a podcast that originated as an Austen vs. Bronte weekly debate, but has now expanded to explore the lives and works of several 18th, 19th, and 20th century women writers. Their most popular episodes include: Northanger Abbey vs. Jane Eyre, A Trip to Chawton House Library, 150 Years of Little Women and The North & South Read-Along (not the one with Patrick Swayze). Hosts Lauren and Hannah are best friends and former colleagues who love literary travel, writing and books printed by Persephone Books in England. They both work in publishing, edit comic books as well as write. Lauren is an Anglophile that lives in Chicago, Illinois and Hannah loves all things American, and lives in Bristol, UK. You can catch up on back episodes of their podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and Google Play.
