Greetings to my Fellow Perth Janeites and to anyone else who happens to wander across our blog.
This blog has been inspired by our new Meeting Coordinator Extraordinaire, Helen Atkinson, who would like our humble little group to reach a wider audience and attract new members, or simply reach those of you who, like us, love all things Jane Austen, but are unable to make it to meetings for whatever reason. While I, Lisa Keane Elliott, will be managing the blog and looking after most of the posts, the idea behind the blog is that it is a communal endeavour with all our members contributing items for your reading pleasure. I will also be listing details regarding our meetings so anyone interested in joining us will know the wheres and whens of our gatherings.
I do hope we are able to provide an informative and diverting place for Perth Chapter members and others to wile away an hour or two revelling in all things Jane Austen. As Miss Austen herself wrote, “Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery”. Here you will find “delightful diversions” from a “company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation” and passion for all things Jane Austen.
I shall return presently with details of our upcoming meetings, so please visit us again if you are interested in coming along.
