The Pittsburgh region meets 4-6 times a year in various venues around the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Some of these meetings include informal teas with group discussion. Some include a viewing and discussion of a movie adaptation of a Jane Austen novel. Others are more formal luncheons. These luncheons feature speakers who discuss Jane Austen, her life, books, and movies, as well as Regency England.

#OTD 1797 Mary Wollstonecraft died at the young age of 38. Radical, divisive and fiercely intelligent, in her most famous work 'A Vindication of the Rights of Woman' (1792), Wollstonecraft argued against women's subjugation and for the need for female education. We have a first edition of Wollstonecraft's Vindication on display in the library as part of 'Writing Women's Rights'. https://chawtonhouse.org/whats-on/display-writing-womens-rights/

"Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her."
