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 firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
