Fall Reminders and Announcements
A happy late Michaelmas, and happy 10/10/10, to all CNY Janeites! There are quite a few reminders and announcements to be made:
* Don't forget our next JASNA Syracuse meeting, to be held at RiverRead Books, 5 Court St., Binghamton, on Saturday, Nov. 6, at 2 pm. The topic will be "Jane Austen and Dance"; please bring your favorite dance-related passages from the novels to share!
* Don't forget the special event being offered at the Colgate Bookstore, 3 Utica St., Hamilton, on Saturday, Nov. 13, at 2 pm: David Shapard, editor of the just-published The Annotated Persuasion, will be present to autograph and discuss the book. This will be followed by tea at the Colgate Inn. See our first August 24 post, and the "Events" listing, for more details.
* We are very pleased and excited to be able to announce plans for our JASNA Syracuse December program: We'll be joining the Jane Austen Singing School for Young Ladies in Skaneateles for a Regency Christmas concert! Note a change in date: This will be on Sunday afternoon, December 19 (not Saturday, Dec. 18, as noted in the tentative 2010-11 schedule given in our second August 24 post). Watch future blog posts for time, venue, and other details.
* Finally, we're also extremely pleased to announce that Syracuse Co-Coordinator Lisa Brown will be giving a presentation on Regency fashion for women, to be called "Dressing the Miss Bennets," at the first annual Jane Austen Festival sponsored by the JASNA Pittsburgh Region on Saturday, March 12, 2011. Check out JASNA Pittsburgh's website (www.janeaustenpgh.org) for further details about the festival as these are announced.
