District of Columbia Region: Tea, Tours, and Conversation
On The Trail and on the Trial
Please join us for a repeat of a popular summer program which filled to capacity last June. If you missed out before, you can enjoy a tour of the eighteenth century Dumbarton House, a lovely tea, and the company of other Jane Austen admirers.Margie Burns, our very own JASNA DC Metropolitan Region Treasurer, is an independent Austen scholar who also teaches at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She has published often in the past on Jane Austen. Her latest articles in Persuasions and Notes and Queries address two mysteries, one about Austen’s original attempt to publish Northanger Abbey and one about a previously obscure reference in one of Austen’s letters. She will share her findings and her pathway to solving these mysteries with us.
