Celebrate Jane Austen’s birthday at Omaha Public Library’s 11th annual tea party
All are welcome at Omaha Public Library for a delightful afternoon in honor of Jane Austen’s 239th birthday. The eleventh annual Jane Austen Tea will be held on Saturday, Dec. 13, 2-4 p.m. at W. Dale Clark Main Library, 215 S. 15th St. Festivities will include light English fare, tea and a special Reader’s Theatre Production featuring scenes from all six of Jane Austen’s principal novels.
The production will be presented by Linda Duckworth, who is the producer and director. Duckworth hails from Missouri where she is an English teacher, storyteller and librarian.
“Everyone is welcome to attend this special annual event,” said Omaha Public Library Executive Director Gary Wasdin. “What better way to escape from the holiday madness than a brief civilized tea in celebration of one of the world’s finest writers?”
Participants are encouraged to bring their favorite teacups. The Bookworm bookstore will have books and holiday gift items available for purchase.
