Sarah Waters Discusses ‘Dancing With Mr. Darcy’ (with free entry for AustenBlog readers)


Attention London Janeites (and Janeites who can get to London on October 15): Sarah Waters, author of Tipping the Velvet, Fingersmith and most recently The Little Stranger, will discuss Dancing With Mr Darcy, a new collection of short stories inspired by Jane Austen and commissioned to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s arrival in the village of Chawton. (Ms. Waters judged the contest that chose the stories included in the collection.) The event will take place on October 15, 2009 at 6.30 p.m. at The Gallery, Foyles Bookshop, 113-119 Charing Cross Road, London.

Honno Books, which is publishing the collection, will give free admission to AustenBlog readers, but you must register in advance. E-mail to register.

  1. I would love to read this but would rather find a place I can buy it in the US to avoid exorbitant shipping rates. It’s not currently available on Amazon. Any idea where I can get my hands on a copy?

    Monica Fairview and I attended this event last night – I was able to take my copy along and get it signed by the authors who were there and I got to meet Sarah Waters which was a great treat. Monica took lots of photos so we will be doing a blogspot on our blogs about the evening soon. The book’s proceeds go towards Chawton House – a very worthy cause. It’s also a most enjoyable book!

    Potential American readers may be pleased to learn that North American rights tot Dancing with Mr. Darcy have been purchased by Harper Collins. The company expects to publish it in October of 2010. DIsclosure: As one of the prize winners, I am delighted with this news since my own supply of copies has been depleted by JASNA friends who could not purchase their own at the JASNA conference (where they were sold out in a day).
