A Fancy or a Feeling: Jane Austen and the Modern Psyche

October 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

According to some of her readers, the sublime emotions, marriages, and romantic partners present in Austen’s novels (That’s right, Mr. Darcy, we’re looking at you!) have all but ensured their disappointment in the mundane relationships of the 21stcentury. But what if instead of blighted hope, Jane Austen’s novels offered the much-needed wisdom to navigate all kinds of relationships in our contemporary age?

Please join us for a stimulating evening as we explore this question with
Prof. Susan Ostrov Weisser, author of The Glass Slipper: Women and Love Stories and
Wendy Jones, author of Jane on the Brain: Exploring the Science of Social Intelligence with Jane Austen.

An exciting raffle and a delightful afternoon tea will be held afterwards.
