Caroline Jane Knight shares more than Jane Austen’s name and DNA. Caroline is the last Austen descendent to grow up in Chawton on the ancestral estate where Jane herself lived and wrote. Join Caroline for a very special High Tea as she shares her unique childhood growing up surrounded by four hundred years of family history in the heart of her great aunt Jane’s literary legacy, private family photographs and how Jane Austen’s extraordinary popularity has changed the lives of her Chawton family today. Funds raised will be donated to the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation.
Cost: $50 includes a glass of sparkling wine on arrival
