The venue for this event is now St. Etheldreda’s Church.
Robert Topping described the event with John Mullan at our sister bookshop in Bath as one of the highlights of 2012, so we’re thrilled to be able to offer our Ely supporters the same opportunity this year.
Is there any sex in Austen? What do the characters call each other, and why? What are the right and wrong ways to propose marriage? And which important Austen characters never speak?
What Matters in Jane Austen? is a new approach to Austen. By focussing on the quirks and mysteries surrounding her well known characters, John Mullan brings the intricate, careful intelligence and talent that makes her writing so special to the fore.
John is a fantastic speaker and creates an atmosphere of discussion and engagement that is quite unlike any other. Do not miss this event!
