Today marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. There have been many events today to commemorate this, and I attended the a lecture and morning tea at City of Ryde Library. The lecture was given by Paul Brunton, Emeritus Curator at the State Library of NSW, an authority on the 18th century and a long time Austen fan.
I attended in costume, promoting the society and the upcoming events we have. Hopefully I saw you there1
