We’re celebrating the life and works of Jane Austen with Austen in Autumn; and, yes, most of our programs are for teens and adults. But not all of them!
We threw a tea party on Saturday where kids could learn about Austen and Britain’s Regency Era.
We also made nosegays, silhouette pendants and bilboquets (which you probably know as the ball-in-cup game,) while enjoying cucumber sandwiches and tea.
We still have several Austen in Autumn programs coming up including our Austen film series. This Thursday, we’re hosting a free screening of Clueless (which is a remake and modernization of Austen’s Emma) at Great Lakes Mall Atlas Cinemas.
Also, the Geauga Lyric Theater will have a special reprise of its rendition of Pride & Prejudice at our Main Branch on Tuesday, Oct. 13.
That includes a Pride and Prejudice and Zombies party for teens on Oct. 12. Teens can practice their skulking and celebrate Halloween a little early when they party like the undead.
