Dancing With Darcy Ball Raised Profile of Chawton House

Last July, Chawton House held a ball - Dancing With Darcy - to raise the profile of the great house, once owned by Jane Austens elder brother, Edward, and lovingly restored by Sandy Lerner, depicted above and Cisco Systems co-founder.

Stanford Magazine (found via Laurel Ann at Twitter) offered an article and a few images of that event in their 2009 fall issue.

Dancing with the Bennet Sisters has priority on my to do list!

I appreciate what Sandy Lerner has done for Jane Austen's house in Chawton. She deserves her dance with Mr. Darcy:
