Autumn with Austen: Tea Party and Film

Thursday, November 14, 2024
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us at the Cold Spring branch as we discuss the classics! This month, enjoy a tea party and film showing.

Similar to last year’s Shaking Up Shakespeare series, Autumn with Austen is a short program series taking place at the Cold Spring branch, where we will Shake Up the ways in which you view this piece of classic literature. Austen’s works are timeless and have been the inspiration for many of our favorite modern-day tales. Join us each month as we explore Austen’s works through a classroom-style discussion, theatrical workshop, and a Victorian-era tea party!

 

This month, join us for a Victorian-style tea party along with a showing of Amy Heckerling’s 1995 rom-com adaptation of one of Austen’s works!

Where can I read Jane Austen’s works?

You can find Jane Austen’s many works in our collection, both in physical and digital formats! Search by specific title or by author in the library’s catalog to place items on hold.

Some of Austen’s works are always available in our digital collection! Visit Kentucky Libraries Unbound and log in with your library card number, or search for her titles in the Libby by Overdrive app! If you have never used Libby or Kentucky Libraries Unbound and are unsure how to get started, visit any of our branches to speak with an Information Services staff member for assistance.

Jane Austen completed only six official works during her lifetime, two of which were published after her death. She also authored two unfinished novels and her ‘Juvenilia’ stories. To view a complete list of Austen’s works, please visit janeausten.org.
