Jane Austen High Tea – Wednesday 29 November at 3pm, or Thursday 30 November, 6pm.
This November the Parkes Book Club will be hosting a very special Jane Austen book club event. This year is the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and yet she is still a much-loved author of the English language. The Parkes Book Club will take the form of an open mic event with everyone encouraged to share their favourite Jane Austen quote and explain what they like about it. There will also be a high tea and plenty of laughs as Elizabeth Bennett says, “I dearly love to laugh”. Book Club regulars, prospective new members and Jane Austen lovers are all welcome!
