Join us for this weekend's Chawton House Lockdown Literary Festival? It's free, and it's going to be fun. The schedule will be shared shortly, but I think I'll be on Sat. (UK, late aft. / morning US), with a prerecorded video lecture on "All the Janes: Austen, West, and Porter," followed by a live Twitter Q&A. The line up of other speakers is jaw dropping. I can't wait to see their contributions and participate in the exchanges, Friday to Sunday. Register for no-cost tickets here.
