Literature Lecture and Lunch: Persuasion by Jane Austen

1st November, 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm


Dr Jane Mackay

Austen’s last full novel and the favourite of many.  Come and meet her charming heroine, Anne Elliot, saddened and unmarried at 28.  Anne is older and wiser than Austen’s other heroines and, for many, embodies all the qualities that Austen herself admired … but will she win back Captain Wentworth?

Part of a series of literature lectures exploring great writers, their lives and their books, followed by a delicious Launde Lunch. Presented by renowned speaker Dr Jane Mackay.

The lecture lasts for approximately one hour and is followed by a two-course lunch in the Abbey Dining Room.
