Please note, this event was originally programmed for 19 May 2020 and has been rescheduled for 6 November 2020.

The enduring legacy of Pride and Prejudice lives on with two new wonderful novels imagining the lives of two supporting characters. Former BBC Two Controller Janice Hadlow (The Other Bennet Sister) provides a witty and uplifting look at Mary, the bookish ‘ugly duckling’ sister whilst historical novelist Helen Moffett (Charlotte) considers Charlotte Lucas and her determination to carve a place for herself in the world. They talk about their books and all things Austen to James Long.
