Northern California Region: Valentine's Day Celebration (Virtual)
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Valentine's Day Celebration
Celebrate Valentine’s Day by joining fellow Janeites in exploring the romance of Jane Austen’s novels.
The evening’s entertainment will consist of three parts:
- A short presentation by Anne Krause on how Valentine’s Day was celebrated in the Regency.
- Group discussion of several love poems by some of Austen’s favorite poets, including Cowper, Byron, and one by Jane herself.
- Group discussion sharing romantic moments and passages in Austen’s novels, beginning with a brief but deep dive into Captain Wentworth’s “half-agony, half-hope” letter.
