Description

Ever wondered what it might be like to have been raised in the house that once was graced by Jane Austen? Come and hear Caroline Jane Knight - Jane Austen's five times great niece - as she shares the story of her upbringing at Chawton Manor in Hampshire. Caroline's personal story is closely linked to that of Jane Austen and her writings.

Caroline will have copies of her book, "Jane and Me" for sale and signing.

The presentation is being held in conjunction with Jane Austen: By A Lady, an exhibition which explores the life, times and books of Jane Austen. The exhibition runs until 29th March 2018.
