misc_none 2:00 PM Obituaries in Jane Austen’s Time   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Lawrence Programs   609-989-6920   lawprogs@mcl.org
    Newspaper obituaries were well established by the time of Jane Austen. Yet they were generally afforded to the rich, the powerful and the male of the species. Austen was none of these; thus notifications of her death were sparse in content. This program, presented by British writer Tim Bullamore, will discuss those that did appear with other obituaries of her time. Mr. Bullamore, editor of "Jane Austen’s Regency World" magazine, is also an award-winning obituary writer who has contributed to major British newspapers as well as undertaking research into the genre. The program is co-sponsored by the Central NJ region of the Jane Austen Society of North America and the Friends of the Lawrence Library. Refreshments will be served. Registration suggested.
