I had a delightful time this weekend speaking to the Jane Austen Society of North America's Ottawa branch. Our lively discussion touched on everything from the continuing relevance of classic literature to the appeal of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. My Jane Austen Action Figure -- she's a prop in my speech -- was also welcomed warmly.
Ottawa looked lovely, even through a drizzle; I hope I'll be able to return some day soon. Thanks again for the invitation!
