Word Week 2017 | Noe Valley
Jane Austen lived and wrote 200 years ago, but her books are still avidly read and her plain life studied today. What is it about her novels and Jane herself that continue to fascinate readers?
Danine Cozzens, co-chair of the Jane Austen Society, Northern California Region, will speak to this point at Word Week’s A Celebration of Jane Austen. In addition, four local authors will read from some of Jane’s finished work. New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Cara Black and Mary McNear will read from Northanger Abbey and Pride and Prejudice, poet and novelist Marylee McNeal from Mansfield Park, and short story author Richard May from Persuasion. Jane Austen inspired door prizes will be awarded, and Netherfield punch will be served.
