Take the spa waters with us!

Where might Sanditon’s Mr. Tom Parker have found his inspiration for a fashionable spa bathing place? How did the practice of drinking tepid mineral water get started?

Join JASNA-DC virtually on Sunday, June 12, at 4 p.m. (ET) when Dr. Roger Moore reveals “The Prehistory of the Spa: Bath and Sanditon in Medieval Perspective.”

Dr. Moore, senior associate dean and principal senior lecturer in English at Vanderbilt University, is well known to JASNA members as an expert speaker on Austen topics.

Register below. There is no charge. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We look forward to having you with us for what promises to be an excellent talk, followed by lively conversation!
