Jane Austen at Home
Dr Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, is a hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker passionate about making history engaging to the widest possible audience. Her new biography of Jane Austen will be published in May 2018 and takes at new look at Jane Austen’s life from the perspective of her bi-centenary.
It considers what home meant to Jane, and tells the story through the rooms, spaces, possessions and places which mattered to her. Dispelling the myth of the cynical, lonely spinster Lucy instead offers us a witty and passionate woman of her time, who refused to settle for anything less than Mr Darcy.
