  1. We’re just reading the fragment, right? As in only the chapters written by Jane? I have the “Another Lady” completion and figure this would be a good way to start it :)


    1. Hi Trai, the group read and event are for Sanditon, Jane Austen’s fragment. I am planning on reading the continuation by Another Lady the following week and reviewing it, so this great timing for you. I look forward to your comments.

      Cheers, Laurel Ann
