Birthday Tea 2019

Members and friends recently enjoyed an absolutely lovely tea in the beautiful Kansas City Club celebrating (belatedly) our Jane's birthday. Our own Julienne Gehrer delighted us with her extensive research into what it would be like Dining with Jane Austen, her recently published book by the same title. I'm sure we will all be trying her recipes soon! Many thanks also to Mary Jo Powell for sharing this beautiful venue.
