The title says it all–registration is open for the 2018 Jane Austen Day, “The Power of Persuasion,” on April 21, 2018 in Philadelphia, though this time it is actually in the suburbs at the Merion Cricket Club in Haverford, a short drive or train ride away from downtown.
The event has a great lineup of speakers, including Lynn Festa, Susannah Fullerton, Whit Stillman, and Juliette Wells, talking about all things Persuasion.
It is a day-long event and the price includes a light continental breakfast and luncheon. There will also be an Emporium (welcoming Jane Austen Books for the first time at this event) selling not only books but other Austen-related goodies.
It should be a great day, and the available space is filling fast, so get your registration in while you can.
P.S. A thousand internet points that don’t mean anything to the first commenter who can identify the inspiration for the poster design…other than Captain Wentworth’s letter, of course.
