Fashion in Fiction: Clothing Speaks Volumes in Jane Austen's Fiction

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Celebrate Jane Austen's birth anniversary (December 16)! Join us for a delightful show-and-tell on the clothing of Regency England as reflected in Jane Austen's fiction. While dressed in authentic Regency attire, dynamic performance artist Kandie Carle gives a detailed overview of the clothing of the Regency Era (early 1800's) for both gentlemen and ladies. She shares excerpts from Austen's personal letters as well as passages from some of the novels, highlighting Miss Austen's use of clothing and fashion to define character and class, enhance story line, and develop plot points. Ms. Carle has been performing historical programs since 1992 and draws on her extensive background in theater, dance and historical fashion to engage and enthrall the audience. To register, please email wsnmail2@minlib.net; a Zoom link will be sent to you closer to the date of the program. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
