The Glendale, Ariz., Public Library is hosting a virtual Jane Austen mini-fest on November 7, 2020, where I will be on a panel of authors who’ve all written novels that involve Jane Austen and time travel.
There are additionally some other interesting-sounding talks featuring some of my personal favorite authors in the Jane Austen world, among them Devoney Looser, Deborah Yaffe, and Soniah Kamal, so I am looking forward to listening as well as talking! You can register now. The sessions will also be posted later if you can’t make it that Saturday; I will add the link when available.
