Libraries in Jane Austen's Time
Featuring Claire Bellanti, President of the Jane Austen Society of North America. Following short talks about the Jane Austen Society and Chawton House Library, enjoy an illustrated presentation, "You Can Get a Parasol at Whitby's: Circulating Libraries in Jane Austen's Time." Our speaker will provide a brief history of the circulating library and, using references to Austen's novels and letters, show how central such libraries were in the reading and sharing of books in Regency England.
