Reading in Reading Jane Austen

Venue: The Olympia Shehnai (Directions)

Sun 30 Oct, 13:30


Almost everything we think we know about Jane Austen is wrong. That is the starting point for a new biography from Helena Kelly, who teaches Austen at Oxford and Bath. She reveals how the Pride & Prejudice author – educated at Reading Ladies Boarding School – bravely took on subjects including femininism, slavery and the power of the church. She joins bestselling novelist and Austen aficionado Gill Hornby.
