Among the Janeites at the Eudora Welty Library
By Deborah Yaffe, Sep 17 2015 01:00PM
My next book talk will take place this coming Sunday, September 20, from 2-4 pm in Jackson, MS: I’ll be speaking to the Mississippi branch of the Jane Austen Society of North America. A reception will follow the talk, and of course I’m always thrilled to sign Among the Janeites for anyone kind enough to buy a copy.
The talk will be held at the Eudora Welty Library, 300 North State Street in Jackson. Let us just contemplate for a moment the delightfulness of a library named after a writer, rather than after someone who gave a bunch of money to build it. (Although I hasten to add that I’m all in favor of people who have a bunch of money using it to build libraries.)
All the details are on the Events page of my website. The local paper in Jackson also ran a story about the event and its host, the Mississippi JASNA chapter. If you plan to be in Jackson on Sunday, please drop by!
Given the timing of this visit, you may be in a special position to lift spirits in MS this weekend. Please give all my best to anyone who may be attending from Delta State.
Will do, Marie -- it was indeed a terrible week in Mississippi.
