Talk: AUSTEN SISTERS a literary recital of readings from Jane and Cassandra Austen’s letters, prose, and poetry, by local actress and speaker, Rowan Suart

The recital includes extracts from Jane’s juvenilia works and short stories, her novel ‘Persuasion’ and ‘Miss Austen’ poem, and Cassandra’s letter to their niece following Jane’s death. Fresh from the Bath Jane Austen Festival, Alton Regency Week, and Lindfield Arts Festival in 2018, and Farnham Flash Festival 2017, this presentation provides a unique illustration of Jane Austen’s life from an early age and her relationship with Cassandra, as well as her preoccupation with sisters in her prose. “So much more than a reading, it is a full performance”.
