Program and Party 

Dec. 19 at 4 p.m.

Join JASNA DC for a very special presentation by Susan Allen Ford, Editor of Persuasions and Persuasions Online!

The “Improvement of the Mind”:  Darcy, Elizabeth, and Conduct Books

Dr. Ford will discuss how Jane Austen uses Fordyce’s Sermons to Young Women and Hester Mulso Chapone’s Letters on the Improvement of the Mind in Pride and Prejudice and what those titles might tell us about the history of that novel and her growth as a writer.

BYOB—bring your own bubbly to this Zoom meeting for the annual toast to Jane.  Dr. Ford will do the honors!
