Lucy Worsley – Jane Austen at Home
Dr Lucy Worsley is passionate about making history engaging to the widest possible audience. Her new biography of Jane Austen will be published in May next year and takes at new look at Jane Austen’s life from the perspective of her bi-centenary. It considers what home meant to Jane, and tells the story through the rooms, spaces, possessions and places which mattered to her. Dispelling the myth of the cynical, lonely spinster Lucy instead offers us a witty and passionate woman of her time, who refused to settle for anything less than Mr Darcy.
Lucy is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces and is a hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker. This exclusive show accompanies the launch of her new biography of Jane Austen.
There will be a Q&A and book signing after the show.
