About the celebration 
You are cordially invited to the 11th annual Jane Austen Birthday Tea–a Virtual Reali-Tea! This year, you will celebrate Austen from the comfort of your own estate.

We are so pleased that Natalie Jenner will be joining us as our featured speaker. Her bestselling novel, The Jane Austen Society, is a fictional account of the formation of the Jane Austen Society in Chawton, England during the 1940s. In it, eight characters are drawn together by their appreciation for Jane Austen–a bond which, you know from personal experience, is powerful. You may purchase signed copies of Jenner’s book, The Jane Austen Society (Opens in a new window)from our partner Face in a Book.

Then, English Country Dance caller, Kalia Kliban, will be joining us virtually to lead us in dance.
