Discussion Led by Cathy Blake and Leah Wilson

     How does a laptop, a barouche, the daughter of Mansfield, a card of Lace, or a bathing machine figure in Jane Austen's Life?

     Come to our timely discussion of Paula Byrne's The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things at the Plaza Library and find out! Your humble servants Cathy Blake and Leah Wilson will attempt to lead the third and final part of our 2017 series of One By Jane, One About Jane, and One Because of Jane!

**Please bring an item that would be in an edition of your life in small things.**

As is our tradition, please bring a teacup and a sweet or savory treat to share.
