Syrie gave an enjoyable talk, and I learned more about her new book. For instance, it was interesting to hear that every character in Jane Austen's First Love was a real person! The picture on the cover is what Goodnestone really looks like. Syrie did so much research for this book, it is amazing really. Most of this information and more is in the Author's Afterword in the back of the book. Plus, there is an article in Jane Austen's Regency World about it.
Syrie read chapter one aloud in a lovely British accent! It was a delightful afternoon!
There was also a raffle, and I won a beautiful little book full of quotes from Jane's books called, The Jane Austen Companion to Life.
I decided while I was there might as well get a book to give to one of my readers! So, I grabbed an extra copy of Jane Austen's First Love and had Syrie sign it!
