Sydney meeting
Edward Taylor: Jane Austen’s First Love
Syrie James

Syrie James will discuss her critically acclaimed novel Jane Austen’s First Love and her research which uncovered a wealth of previously unknown information about the real-life Edward Taylor, heir to a grand estate, who Austen mentioned as a young man upon whom she once “fondly doated.” Jane Austen’s First Love, which the Historical Novel Society called a “masterwork,” was Library Journal Editor’s Pick of the Year and was described as “A quite delightful romance—not only a touching record of a young girl’s first experience of love, but also a funny, eventful and entertaining comedy of Regency manners.”—Jane Austen’s Regency World Magazine
