Carrie Bebris Talk

carrie bebris2In commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, the Dayton Region is partnering with the Dayton Public Library in presenting a program for the public titled “Celebrating Jane Austen.” Dayton Regional Coordinator and author of the Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries, Carrie Bebris will present an illustrated talk that traces Austen’s path to publication in a period when novels were considered lowbrow entertainment. She’ll also talk about the current, ever-growing popularity of Austen’s works, and the challenges of trying to follow in those footsteps as she recreates Austen’s Regency England in her own novels. This meeting is free and open to the public.
