“Young Jane Austen” at the Jane Austen Literary Festival

Attendees at this year’s Jane Austen Literary Festival, March 21 and 22, will get a sneak peak at Young Jane Austen: Becoming a Writer via specially created “calling cards,” and will also have the opportunity to bid on a signed advance reader’s copy during the silent auction.


Sponsored by the Jane Austen Foundation of Louisiana, this annual event, which takes places in Mandeville, includes a hugely popular costume contest, a variety of talks and discussions, live music and dancing, a film screening, promenades, and children’s activities as well.
