A Jane Austen Birthday Tea! Join us on Zoom to celebrate!

We are celebrating Jane Austen this month at our Tea Society and I couldn’t be more excited! 

The only thing that could make me happier is to invite you all, so here’s what’s happening.

On the 16th of December, the anniversary  of Jane Austen’s birthday, we are having a tea party via zoom. You can join me & the Society members by registering here!

I have a fun agenda of music from film soundtracks, tea time menu & recipes from the Austen family, tea from Bingley’s Teas, games from the regency era and new ones too.

 

In addition, I would like to use this opportunity to give back. I have been blessed throughout my life with a adoration for reading. I can’t imagine getting through this pandemic without my library card and my kindle subscription. I brought my children up to be readers, in fact my oldest is a Library Director. So take one minute and think about the privilege of reading that we take for granted most times. With this in mind, I am hosting a fundraiser for the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation. 

I first learned of this foundation while on a Zoom call with the Enchanted Book Club. Caroline Jane Knight was the guest speaker. She is Jane Austen’s 5th great niece and founder of the JALF. She is also the author of “Jane & Me-my Austen Heritage”. It’s an incredibly fascinating look into her life and childhood, living at Chawton House and more. I can highly recommend this book for any Austen fan.

(I found my copy on Abebooks.com-I’m a big fan of used books)

When you register  for our special birthday tea party, no fee is charged, you will also receive some fun downloads. These downloads were provided by the Foundation when I signed up to host the Fundraiser. They had a very big  Jane Austen Tea Party, which I can’t believe I missed, with special guests and prizes. We will be having some fun door prize drawings and by registering and attending our Event you will be entered to win.

We hope to see your smiling face, favorite teacup & friends (maybe even your regency finery) on our Zoom call to celebrate this wonderful woman, Jane Austen.

Register for this event and put a smiley face on your calendar!

Tea Cheers til then!

Kathleen
