Sandglass Theater's Winter Sunshine Series Returns with I Laid An Egg by Double Image Theater Lab

PUTNEY VT- On March 18th at 11am and 2pm Sandglass’s beloved Winter Sunshine series begins with Double Image Theater Lab.

1st Wednesdays At Brooks Library: In Her Time: A Fresh Look At Jane Austen With Dartmouth Professor Suzanne Brown

Dartmouth visiting assistant professor Suzanne Brown will look at novelist Jane Austen’s response to the events of her era in a talk at Brooks Memorial Library in Brattleboro on March 1 at 7:00 pm. Her talk, “Jane Austen in Her Time,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.

See the Facebook event here.

Jane Austen lived in exciting times, and yet until recently was considered “untouched by the political, intellectual, and artistic revolutions of her age.” Drawing on Austen’s novels, Dartmouth visiting assistant professor Suzanne Brown shows how Austen was in fact a keen observer of her era’s values who both shared and critiqued them.
