Saving Jane Austen's Home - Susannah Fullerton
The talk also looks at why people who love an author’s works want to go and see where that writer lived and what sort of landscape inspired them. Why do literary tourists want to discover how a home reflects an author’s personality? What do we want to see when we visit an author’s house museum, what sorts of items should be on display and what is best kept from public view? And what emotions are evoked by visiting a beloved author’s home?
Join JASA President and tour leader, Susannah Fullerton to celebrate the 80th birthday of the Jane Austen Society UK, and to explore Jane Austen’s Chawton home.
Please note: This event will be filmed and made available to all members. More details about this meeting will follow, once they are finalised.
