Miss Elodie must confess that she does not much care for crowds. However, when large numbers of people, even Strangers, come together to celebrate anything of importance, she often will make an exception and attend.
This October the Jane Austin Society of North America will hold its annual meeting in Fort Worth, a lovely and quite cultured community not too many hours north of where Miss Elodie currently resides. Although she may not be a Stalwart Janeite, she is certainly an admirer of the Lady's Literary Works.
Miss Austen's novel "Sense and Sensibility" turns 200 years old this year and will be the theme of the conference. Yours Truly believes "Persuasion" to be her favorite, but will admit that "Sense and Sensibility" is a near runner up.
Perhaps we will see you in Fort Worth this Fall?
