The Jane Austen Summer Program is excited to announce its 2017 symposium, “200 Years of PERSUASION.” The fifth annual event will take place June 15-18 in Carrboro and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Participants will have the opportunity to hear expert speakers and participate in discussion groups each day, as well as join in a Regency ball, partake in an English tea, and visit special exhibits tailored to the conference.
