Homecoming & Manhood in Persuasion

Jane Austen Birthday Celebration

In every novel, the successful hero experiences the kind of homecoming that means the most to Austen: that of the mind and heart. It is a process by which he comes to know a truth about himself that transforms him. “Homecoming and Manhood in Persuasion” considers what helps or hinders Captain Wentworth in his quest to do so.  ​​
Join us Saturday, December 16th, for the celebration of the 242nd anniversary of the birthday of our beloved  Jane Austen.  Dr. Joyce Tarpley, the 2015-2016 JASNA Traveling Lecturer will be our speaker.  Dr. Tarpley is an entertaining and informative speaker who will bring fresh perspectives to the novels of Jane Austen.  Join us for a celebration worthy of our favorite Regency Author.
