Free talk: 'The Spirituality of Jane Austen'

Talk as part of Bath's Jane Austen Festival by Paula Hollingsworth, Dean of Women’s Ministry for the Diocese and author of Spirituality of Jane Austen

What gives Jane Austen’s writings such an enduring appeal to people of different cultures and of ever new generations? Paula Hollingsworth, author of The Spirituality of Jane Austen, published in 2017, explores the spiritual depths of Jane Austen’s novels, depths which she believes are reflected in Jane’s own life and which transcend cultures and generations, bringing inspiration and challenge to old and new readers around the world today.

All welcome. Free talk, no tickets or pre-booking required.

There will be an opportunity to meet Paula for book signing after the talk.

Copies of Paula's book 'The Spirituality of Jane Austen' will be available to purchase from the Abbey Shop.
