Massachusetts Region: Mothers and Mother-Figures
How to Mother a Heroine
Please join us for a special season-closing event! We will finish our 2018-2019 season with a lecture by Elvira Casal, followed by a lovely afternoon tea. As befitting a talk one week after Mother’s Day, Dr. Casal will discuss the many interesting mothers and mother-figures in Jane Austen's novels.
Elvira Casal teaches English at the Middle Tennessee University at Murfreesboro. She earned her Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University and teaches courses in 18th- and 19th-century British literature, ESL, the short story, the novel, and Jane Austen.
