July 2017 marks the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen. To commemorate the occasion, we welcome Caroline Jane Knight – the last Austen descendant to be raised in Chawton Great House where Jane wrote her famous literature.
Caroline is an awarded businesswoman, philanthropist, writer and the founder and Chair of the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation. We are thrilled to have her speak on the life and times of Jane Austen and how her books are still relevant today, as well as growing up surrounded by the legacy of her famous Great Aunt.
After the event, Caroline will sign copies of her new book - Jane & Me - My Austen Heritage.
Bookings essential, places are limited.
