Saturdays with Jane

Jane Austen’s novels have enthralled readers since the 1800s, and yet it was only after her death that they were published with her name on them. You are invited to join our fun and friendly discussions of Jane’s work and themes.

One a month on Saturdays, starting 28 August
1.30 pm - 3.30 pm
Dickson Library

Bookings are recommended for these FREE sessions: http://www.library.act.gov.au/ or phone 6205 9000.

Choose a session that interests you, or come along to all of them. Sessions will be facilitated by Julia Ermert, from the Jane Austen Society of Australia.
