Welcome Anglophiles! Please tune in below to the Jane Austen Pride & Prejudice readathon, live from the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, England. The Centre and the City of Bath College are conducting a 12-hour, real-time, online reading of Pride & Prejudice, via streaming video, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the book's publication. The reading began today at 11 a.m. GMT/6 a.m. ET (albeit late and with some technical difficulties!) Some 140 celebrities, authors, politicians, musicians, Olympians, and school children are reading 10-minute segments, dressed in Regency costumes. The program also offers Regency drama, dancing, and music. Drop in and listen for 5 minutes or 5 hours--or 12. Enjoy!
I am a writer, artist, and incurable Anglophile! Thank you for reading my blog, and please feel free to join my discussions about Britain. I look forward to hearing your comments and stories!
