Join us at Chawton House Library for a study day to celebrate Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, published 200 years ago in January 1813.

The day will conclude at the Jane Austen House Museum, with a selection of readings from the novel by Elizabeth Garvie, the actress who played Elizabeth Bennet in the 1980 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice.
