Frock Flicks & the Bill and Ted Test: Austen-Era Fashion in History vs. Hollywood
Clothing in film adaptations of Jane Austen’s works really runs the gamut—from truly awful to absolutely spot-on. In this lively discussion, our panel of costume experts examines it all. With an eye toward historic accuracy as well as character-appropriate choices, we ask--Who got it right? Who got it wrong? And what happened to all the hairpins?
Featuring Trystan L. Bass, Hilary Davidson, Sarah Lorraine, and Kendra Van Cleave, with moderator Laura Whitlock.

"I Dearly Love a Laugh": Jane Austen's Influential Wit and Humor
Jane Austen is one of the wittiest writers in the English language. Her books are packed with humor, from wry observations of human failings to snark, sass, and epic shade; she delights in "follies and absurdities" and "anything ridiculous." Our panelists will discuss the ways in which Jane Austen makes them laugh and examine the influence of her humor on their own Austen-inspired comic ventures.
Featuring Mark Brownlow, Amy Cooke-Hodgson, Bianca Hernandez, and Rose Servitova, with moderator Anna Caggiano. Please note that Amy Cooke-Hodgson's appearance is subject to change due to professional commitments.

Jane, the Musicals: The Austen Trilogy of Paul Gordon
Tony award nominee Paul Gordon and his producer wife, Stephanie Kane Gordon, will answer our questions about the journeys of his three popular Jane Austen musicals from text to stage.
Featuring Stephanie Kane Gordon and Paul Gordon.

The Wicked W's: Wickham vs. Willoughby
It is a truth universally acknowledged that George Wickham and John Willoughby are the most detestable rogues in all of Austen — unless you ask them. They claim that, far from being wicked wastrels, they're victims of circumstance, wrongly maligned by Judgy Jane — or, at least, that one of them isn't quite as bad as the other. Join the Austen Acolytes Book Club as these two men place themselves at the mercy of the Dread Janeite Tribunal, each competing to convince our judges that he's not the Worst of the W's.
Featuring the members of The Austen Acolytes, a local Jane Austen book club, with moderator Kathleen Beauchamp.
