This illustrated talk describes Austen's path to publication in a period when women were discouraged from writing professionally and novels were considered lowbrow entertainment. Local author of the Mr. & Mrs. Darcy mysteries, Carrie Bebris also shares how she recreates Austen's Regency England in her own novels.
Light Refreshments will be provided by the Dayton Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America.
