While the topics for our meetings are still to be finalised, our dates have been set for 2012, so have your diaries to the ready to book us in! And it’s still the traditional time of 2:30pm.
Saturday February 4th – Members Helen and Alanah will be presenting on ‘How to research Jane Austen’. – Bring along your pen and paper, or whatever electronic form of note-taking you are using in these technologically advanced times, because the girls will be giving us lots of splendid clues on how to delve deeper into the archives of the Austen World.
Saturday April 7th – Member Lauris will be presenting on ‘Sisters in Jane Austen’s Novels’. – Oh no, how awful! We will have to do some reading of Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, Emma and Persuasion in preparation. Won’t we hate that. [insert smiley wink here]
Saturday June 2nd – Topic to be confirmed
August – Date and topic to be confirmed
Saturday October 6th – Members Kay and Marcel will be presenting on ‘Jane Austen and Crime’. – I would suggest that a useful research tool for this meeting would be our very own President Susannah Fullerton’s tome titled Jane Austen and Crime. You may even want to check out the Old Bailey website and find some Regency Rogues for us to discuss.
Saturday December 1st – Christmas Meeting with topic to be confirmed and drinks to be ordered!
