The Quincy Sisters of Boston: Rediscovering Nineteenth-Century Austen Devotees

Our annual meeting celebrating the birthday of Jane Austen, born December 16, 1775, features Juliette Wells, the Elizabeth Conolly Todd Distinguished Professor of English at Goucher College, and editor of the upcoming Penguin 200th anniversary edition of Persuasion. Dr. Wells’ presentation is based on a chapter in her new book, Reading Austen in America. Both books will be available for sale/signing.

Reservations are now closed. We look forward to seeing you on December 9.
