About this event:
Life brought the 19th century English author Jane Austen full circle from her Hampshire home at the Steventon Rectory to the charming cottage on her brother's estate at Chawton. Through various relocations and family visits, Austen experienced a wide range of residences that likely inspired those depicted in her novels--Longbourn, Pemberley, Sotherton Park and more.
Iris Lutz, President of the Jane Austen Society of North America, presents an illustrated lecture of the homes associated with our favorite author in fact and fiction.
This event is hosted by the Jane Austen Society of North America - Greater Chicago Region, dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of Jane Austen and her writings. New members are welcome! For more information click HERE.
