(by guest blogger Monica Cardinale) On June 23, at the Geelvinck Hinlopen Huis Museum in Amsterdam, Sandy Lerner gave a talk about her book "Second Impressions" (a Pride & Prejudice sequel she published as Ava Farmer), a book that took her 26 years to write, after a lot of reading and research. I particularly liked how she enlightened the audience about the theme of the immobility of women in Persuasion, something she understood after comprehending Austen's use of the noun "laundalette" at the end of the book.
The event was organized by the Jane Austen Society of The Netherlands to celebrate 200 years of Pride & Prejudice.
I'm glad to share some of my pictures with you Janeite readers of My Jane Austen Book Club. I hope you'll
