NEW this year: Bare Knuckle Boxing Demonstration! Author Sandy Lerner will also be on hand for a talk and book signing on June 21, 6:30-8:30

Sponsored by the Jane Austen Society, Greater Louisville Region Sandy Lerner, who writes under the nom de plume of Ava Farmer, follows up Pride & Prejudice with Second Impressions. If Jane Austen had lived longer than her all-too-brief one-and-forty years, this might have been the sequel to Pride and Prejudice.  The public is invited to hear her speak about the book, sign copies and stay for scones & tea.
