My husband and I dressed up for a Hallowe’en dance this year as Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. We were supposed to be dressed as a matching couple and I was surprised when my husband agreed to be “Mr. Darcy.” We had a great night – we ran out of time getting the costumes […]

I discovered the existence of a Jane Austen Festival in Canberra, Australia, in 2008.

I’ve since attended two more festivals and been a useful resource […]
