April 21:  JANE AUSTEN DAY IS NOW SOLD OUT.

We are delighted to announce that Elaine Bander, President of JASNA CANADA, will be our special guest for Jane Austen Day. As Janeites everywhere get ready to commemorate the 200th anniversary of “Persuasion,” Elaine has chosen to give a talk entitled “Persuasion:  From Silence to Eloquence.” Details of our afternoon program are still being finalized but we may be lucky enough to enjoy a musical presentation.

Come to hear Keiko Parker tell all about her visit last October to the UK to follow in the footsteps of Jane Austen. Keiko and her fellow travellers went to Godmersham, Horsemonden, Great Bookham, Steventon, Chawton, Winchester, Portsmouth, Bath, and Stoneleigh Abbey before spending a few days in London. While there, they took in the National Portrait Gallery as well as some other famed sites. Keiko will share a selection of photos she took on the “My ‘Remembering Jane’ Tour.”
