Meeting Report: Claire Bellanti and “You Can Get a Parasol at Witby’s: Circulating Libraries in Jane Austen’s Time”

We very much enjoyed welcoming former JASNA president Claire Bellanti for her illustrated talk on circulating libraries in Jane Austen’s time. The talk was enjoyed by 23 attendees (and several new-to-JASNA-faces) with a lively Q&A following.

Door prizes were offered by our committee and were bestowed upon Jill and Hillari. Afterward, Claire greeted several members in conversation at the meet-and-greet and refreshment time. We hope to welcome more luminaries talk about Jane Austen and her world very soon!
