Enjoy an afternoon of Jane Austen talks, courtesy of the Glendale Public Library, this coming Saturday — including one with Frock Flicks! From noon until 6 p.m. MST on November 7, 2020, you can join the library’s free virtual Jane Austen mini-fest, Pride & Prejudice & Zoom.
With about 10 panels, some live, some prerecorded, this event features a virtual lineup of over 25 Jane Austen experts and enthusiasts from around the world, from critically acclaimed authors to a Tony-award-nominated composer to your own Frock Flicks writing trio.
You can pre-register for the live Zoom panels now on the Glendale Public Library website. Links for the recorded panels will be available on Saturday.
Our panel, “Frock Flicks & the Bill and Ted Test: Austen-Era Fashion in History vs. Hollywood,” is recorded and is a free-wheeling discussion between the three of us and Hilary Davidson (Dress in the Age of Jane Austen: Regency Fashion; @BillAndTedTest). We talk about so many filmed Austen adaptions, good, bad, and mediocre in terms of costume.
Whet your appetite for all things Austen with our reviews and character appreciations here!
