An Adventure Befitting a Heroine ~ the Jane Austen Society’s AGM in Minneapolis!

“If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village,
she must seek them abroad…”
-Jane Austen in Northanger Abbey

Alas! without a Mrs. Allen to squire me about or offer much-needed fashion advice, nor a Henry Tilney awaiting me in the wings, I head off for another adventure at the JASNA Annual Meeting – this year in Minneapolis, in celebration of the bicentenary of Pride & Prejudice.

I promise reporting and pictures upon my return – there is never time to post during the conference, what with lectures, and field trips, and Tea, and Balls and Emporiums, one has not a moment to reflect until on the plane returning home – so I will offer various musings on the event next week … I will try to facebook and/or Twitter if I can [but no promises!] so check both for updates:

    Deb,you’ve gone all unnecessary, you have gone all Mrs Bennett.
    A handkerchief perfumed with lavender might be required.

    Posting on Twitter, continuously throughout an event is a must these days, I thought. I can’t see the point, though. Who, out there wants to read off the cuff musings, some of them inspired by inebriated moments!!

    My Twitter account never sees light of day and remains gathering dust.
    .. I have nobody to talk to on it!! ha! ha! And who would want to hear?? Nobody knows me. Ha! ha!

    • And as you can see Tony I did no posting at all – no time at these things! – I am just back from Minneapolis and will hopefully do a few posts to let everyone know how wonderful it all was…so stay tuned!

  2. Deb, you said that you are giving a presentation at the AGM.
    I would love to know what you are talking about. I can only imagine that what you have to say is apt, important and insightful, You have a good mind.
