Having a Ball with Jane Austen

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ October 10, 2015

 Another full day of great events at the Jane Austen Society of North America AGM "Living in Jane Austen's World" in Louisvile.  Started out with a wonderful talk on the place of spinsters in Regency England by Amanda Vickery, historian, writer, BBC presenter and professor at Queen Mary College, London.                                                                                                                                                                                                    . 

Then two talks especially appropriate for the mystery writer:  "Jane Austen and the Master Spy" about William Wickham, the man who ran the Scarlet Pimpernel  and surely served as the model for Jane austen's George Wickham; followed by "Jane Austen and Crime", an analysis of criminal acts that occur in Jane Austen's very proper novels.

I had a lesson on the proper way to sit in a sedan chair: A lady never stoops--the top lifts up so she can enter upright, then sink downgracefully--way down. The seat is much lower than one expects

My last pass through the emporium gave me a chance for a litte Christmas shopping at VISINDI Beauty for luxury, handmade soaps by Evie Cotton who won a Dragon's Den-type competition to start her own high end business.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Author Booksigning followed. I always love meeting and talking to readers!

And the perfect conclusion to the day--banquet, promenade and Regency ball with my own Mr. Darcy!
