My next book talk will take place this coming Sunday, September 20, from 2-4 pm in Jackson, MS: I’ll be speaking to the Mississippi branch of the Jane Austen Society of North America. A reception will follow the talk, and of course I’m always thrilled to sign Among the Janeites for anyone kind enough to buy a copy.

The talk will be held at the Eudora Welty Library, 300 North State Street in Jackson. Let us just contemplate for a moment the delightfulness of a library named after a writer, rather than after someone who gave a bunch of money to build it. (Although I hasten to add that I’m all in favor of people who have a bunch of money using it to build libraries.)

All the details are on the Events page of my website. The local paper in Jackson also ran a story about the event and its host, the Mississippi JASNA chapter. If you plan to be in Jackson on Sunday, please drop by!

I’ve been taking my vitamins faithfully, and I trust I’ll be healthy enough tonight to deliver the talk at the Princeton Public Library that I had to cancel last month because of illness.

I’ll be speaking about and signing Among the Janeites, starting at 7 pm in the Community Room of the library, 65 Witherspoon Street in Princeton, NJ. The talk is free and open to the public -- no tickets required. And the library is a beautiful and inspiring public space, well worth seeing for its own sake.

I hope to see you tonight!
