If you feel that “There is a monsterous deal of stupid quizzing, & common-place nonsense talked, but scarcely any wit”, then we encourage to attend any or all of these events on Jane’s social calendar for “It is such a happiness when good people get together — and they always do.”
From lectures, teas, dances, and Jane’s Birthday there is something to attend yourself in the realm of a Janeite. Anyway, do not fret should you find yourself required to go alone because “from the whole she deduced this useful lesson, that to go previously engaged to a ball, does not necessarily increase either the dignity or enjoyment of a young lady.”
Memories are to be made and friends are to be had, “But remember that the pain of parting from friends will be felt by everybody at times, whatever be their education or state.”
See you there!
Join host Christine Rosica for a discussion of the 2019 novel “What Kitty Did Next” by Carrie Kablean. This novel is pure fan fiction, continuing the journey of Kitty Bennet picking up her story after the end of “Pride & Prejudice”.
As this is a fan fiction novel, it’s meant to be in the best spirit of Austen’s writing, so please keep that in mind while reading the book and during our discussion. We look forward to a light-hearted and lively conversation.
We will begin with a brief presentation and will then outline some basic discussion rules before opening the room up for conversation.
Please note that this event is limited to 20 attendees. Click the Tickets button in the upper right corner to register for the event.
A Wait List will be made available if you do not get a ticket.
If you have a ticket and are not available to attend, please be sure to return your ticket so that another person can attend.
A few days before the event, the Zoom link and other information will be made available to ticket holders.
The discussion will be recorded and made available on the JASNA-STL website (jasna-stl.org).
