An online alert for today, February 13:
Literary Conversations on Love: Austen, Brontë, and Alcott
by Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum
Sat, Feb 13, 2021, 10:30 PM CET

Join Alison Larkin and Anne Undeland through various stories from Austen, Bronte, and Alcott.

As a special treat for Valentine’s Day, award-winning audiobook narrator/producer Alison Larkin and Ventfort Hall favorite, actress Anne Underland, will read from audiobook classics produced by Alison Larkin Presents.

Readings from such classic novels as Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, and Little Women will be followed by a transatlantic discussion on marriage, love and womanhood and the experience of recording the works of these towering authors.

According to Larkin and Undeland, “we have discovered that during the pandemic, people are suddenly finding solace and wisdom in the classics – some of the listeners for the very first time. Needless to say, we are passionate about bringing the classics to them in easy-to-listen-to audiobooks.” The hour-long event will include not only the readings from the novels but also witty repartee.
