Jane Austen: The Banker’s Sister


Thu 13 Jul 2017 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Lichfield Garrick Studio
Price: £10

When it was announced that Jane Austen would appear on the new £10 note in 2017, the 200th anniversary of her death, there was a flurry of media excitement. Few noted that a £10 Austen banknote was already in existence, albeit one issued by her brother.

Professor Emma Clery delves into new research on this Austen family relationship and explores how the actions of her brother informed her writing, her career and her ultimate success as a writer.
