Please join us next Monday, November 14 for a talk with Professor Rachel Brownstein of the CUNY Graduate Center and Brooklyn College. Her talk is drawn from her latest book Why Jane Austen? and focuses in part on Austen’s novel Emma, and is entitled “Jane Austen and the Dawn of the Information Age.” (This talk is especially of interest to those of you in Dr. King’s “Jane Austen Today” class!) The event begins at 1:45 p.m. and will take place in the seminar room at the Institute for Writing Studies. If Jane Austen is not enough of a draw for you, cookies and coffee will also be served following the talk.
