Jane Austen’s Life and Legacy in 19(ish) Objects

Join us for a whistle-stop tour of Jane Austen’s life and legacy, brought to life by objects in the Jane Austen’s House collection.

Wednesday 3 November
7:00pm — 8:00pm

This lively online talk will whisk us through Jane Austen’s life and legacy, using 19(ish) objects from the Jane Austen’s House collection to help tell the story.

Featuring blockbuster objects such as Jane Austen’s writing table and the magnificent patchwork quilt she made with her mother and sister, as well as some of the lesser known objects in the collection, including a recipe book that tells us how to make ink, a portrait of Jane’s cousin (arguably the original Mr Collins!), and a letter from Jane to the Prince Regent’s librarian.

Celebrate Jane’s remarkable story as told by the objects that were part of it.

Time: 7pm – 8pm (Greenwich Meantime)
