Calling all Jane Austen enthusiasts! The Governor's House in Hyde Park, Vermont, has scheduled a series of four Jane Austen-themed weekends during which her novel Persuasion will be discussed along with afternoon tea and carriage rides. Suzanne Boden, owner of the Governor's House, says of the weekends, "I'm hoping each weekend will be a mix of young people who might know only the movies and are ready to discover the original prose and readers who consider Jane an old friend and can't wait to argue the merits of the new interpretations over breakfast." This year: Persuasion. Next year: Pride and Prejudice. Knickers are a-twist in breathless anticipation! [UPI]
