Description

As part of our Regency Week celebrations, Chawton House Library welcomes Dr Paula Byrne, author of the most recent biography of Jane Austen, The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things (2013). In her talk, she will explore Austen’s lifelong love of the theatre, and her continuing popularity on stage and screen today.

Paula Byrne is an author and biographer. Her first book was Jane Austen and the Theatre (2002), and since then she has published bestselling biographies of Austen (2013), Evelyn Waugh (2009), and Mary Robinson (2005), and the tie-in book to the award-winning movie, Belle, the true story of the daughter of a slave who was brought up by the Lord Chief Justice of England in the years leading up to Abolition.
