Wanderings and Winterlude

Good Day,

I made a welcome journey to Ottawa this weekend to visit family, check out some of the Winterlude activities and, of course, present Afternoon Tea With Jane Austen.

There was a sizable, responsive crowd. (And clever - They laughed in the right places.) It was great fun! The Jane Austen Society if Ottawa also presented me with a lovely gift: an exquisite multi-coloured teacup.

I was also invited to join a few members for tea and conversation afterwards. It was fun discussing several matters of Austenalia both popular and obscure!

Ottawa and Auditoriums

Things are proceeding apace. I continue to work on my summer show.

In the meantime, I am revisiting my earlier show,  Afternoon Tea With Jane Austen. I am delighted to be traveling to Ottawa to present a FREE show at the Ottawa public Library. (Sunday, February 20 at 2 p.m. - 120 Metcalfe - Main Auditorium) Many thanks to the Ottawa Chapter of the Jane Austen Society of North America  for arranging this event.

I am looking forward to donning my bonnet again - And have even procured a new dress for the occasion!

I will also be presenting the show at a private event in April. I shall let you know about my shows as they happen.
