Fashion in Fiction
A delightful show-and-tell on the clothing of Regency England as reflected in Jane Austen's fiction. Includes dressing "Elizabeth Bennet' & 'Mr. Darcy,' and readings from Miss Austen's letters and novels.
While dressed in authentic Regency attire, Ms. Carle gives a detailed overview of the clothing of the Regency Era, (early 1800s) for both gentlemen and ladies. Then Ms Carle shares excerpts from Austen's personal letters as well as passages from some of the novels, highlighting Miss Austen's use of clothing and fashion to define character & class, enhance story line, and develop plot points.
Don't forget to join us for For the Love of Austen events all month long!
A specail thank you to the Friends of the Library for their funding of this program.
