Jane Austen’s Proposals at the Spokane Public Library in Hillyard

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we will be discussing Jane Austen’s Proposals! Join the Jane Austen Society of North America for this in person event on Saturday, 4 February, from 2:00-4:00pm, in the Studio Room of the Spokane Public Library, Hillyard Branch.

Jane Austen is famous for not including the full dialogue of the proposals in the final proposal scenes between her heroes and heroines. Despite that, we love the parts of the romantic proposals that we do get, as well as the funny, embarrassing, and offensive proposals from the minor AND major characters (Mr. Darcy’s first proposal!). Bring your favorite proposal scenes, from the books and film adaptations to discuss! We will have craft supplies available for those who want to create Jane Austen Valentine’s Day Cards or bookmarks, as well as a couple of Jane Austen games to enjoy if there is time and interest. Please bring your own craft supplies if you wish!

Food and drinks are allowed in the Studio Room (no alcohol). If you are willing and able to bring a treat or something, please let us know in this event or a message. It is not mandatory to attend!

Regency attire is always admired, never required.
