Literature Group: Jane Austen & Everton

May 7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Dr Janet Hollinshead will talk about Jane Austen and her unexpected connection to Everton.

The novel Godmersham Park, by Gill Hornby, appeared in 2022. It is the story of Anne Sharp – the governess to Jane Austen’s niece who lived in Kent. It is surprising where the author’s notes can take a local historian – to the Athenaeum library and even to Everton.

Attendance of this talk is free of charge to Athenaeum Members.
