After a very eventful launch day for Jane Austen Made Me Do It on the Internet yesterday, I am off today to the Jane Austen Society of North America’s AGM in Ft. Worth, Texas Oct 14-16, 2011!
It will be great to be reunited with friends and meet new Janeites. The conference is packed with great plenary speakers (Andrew Davies, the King of the Austen adaptation no less) and an assortment social activities to give the flavor of true Texas hospitality, like an evening at Billy Bob’s Honky Tonk for libations and mechanical bull riding! Oh my. One wonders if that is possible in a Regency frock?
My book launch party for Jane Austen Made Me Do It with two of my anthology authors books The Deception at Lyme, by Carrie Bebris and Jane Austen: Blood Persuasion, by Janet Mullany, will be on Friday, October 14 at 6:30 pm at the Sundance Square Barnes & Noble, about a block from the conference hotel. I will also be attending the AGM Author Book Signing event on Sunday morning, October 16 at 8:30 am with other numerous Austen authors. By the time I return home on Sunday, I will be ready for a vacation.
Cheers, Laurel Ann
