Mansfield Park

The novel tells the story of Fanny Price starting when her overburdened family sends her at age 10 to live in the household of her wealthy aunt and uncle, through to her marriage. We will also hear a short talk on the slave trade during this era, as Mansfield Park has the only reference to enslaved people in Austen’s work.

944 E Perrin Ave, Fresno CA. (Map).
