A Jane Austen author event and afternoon tea at Ambleside Library, featuring Langdale author Marian Veevers, to mark the bicentenary of Jane Austen. Marian will talk about her new book, Jane and Dorothy, in which she compares Jane Austen's life with Dorothy Wordsworth's. The two women were born just four years apart in the 1770s and Marian's book compares their education, childhood and upbringing, home lives, loves and emotional and creative worlds.

Despite wide differences in temperament, they faced similar challenges common to many single women of a certain class at that time. Tickets for the event are available from Ambleside Library.
