I will be attending the Jane Austen Society of North America Annual General Meeting in Fort Worth from October 14-16. This is my first AGM, so I'm really excited. Here are the plenary speakers:
Joan Ray - Author of Jane Austen for Dummies
“Sense and Sensibility as Austen’s Problem Novel”
Friday October 14
Andrew Davies - Screenwriter of many Austen film adaptations
“Mr. Darcy’s Wet Shirt and Other Embarrassments: Some Pleasure and Pitfalls in Austen Adaptations”
Saturday October 15
Deirdre Le Faye - Author of Jane Austen, The World of Her Novels
David Selwyn - Austen scholar and Chairman of the Jane Austen Society
“Dynamic Duos: David and Deirdre & Sense and Sensibility”
Sunday October 16
In addition, I will be signing books on Sunday morning along with Austen Authors, Abigail Reynolds, Diana Birchall, and C. Allyn Pierson. Laurel Ann Nattress of Austenprose will be signing copies of her new book, Jane Austen Made Me Do It, a short-story collection, along with Carrie Bebris at a nearby Barnes and Noble.
Registration is now open, and since enrollment has been set at 600, if you are attending, you might want to get a move on it as 305 people have already signed up.
I hope that lots of my readers, friends, fans, etc. will be going. Let's do lunch. :) Mary
