VIRTUAL - Tea with Jane Austen: A Literary Celebration

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Cos Cob Library
The Friends of Cos Cob Library celebrate National Hot Tea Month with a virtual tea party.  Sit down with Jane Austen and join her in a cup of tea! Kim Wilson shares the history of English tea and reveals Jane Austen as an avid tea lover. Tea figures prominently in Austen's life and work. At the center of almost every social situation in her novels, one finds tea. In Emma, does Miss Bates drink coffee? Of course not: 'No coffee, I thank you, for me-never take coffee. -A little tea if you please.' In Pride and Prejudice, what is one of the supreme honors Mr. Collins can envision Lady Catherine bestowing on Elizabeth Bennet and her friends? Why, drinking tea with her, naturally. The audience will learn how to make the perfect cup of tea and what goodies to serve with it. 

The first 40 registrants may reserve a complimentary Tea Party in a Box by The Drawing Room to be picked up from the Cos Cob Library between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. on January 23rd via contactless pick-up.  Registrants will receive an email from the Friends of Cos Cob Library regarding their box.

Reservation priority goes to members of The Friends of the Cos Cob Library until January 2nd. Members of The Friends of Cos Cob Library will receive an advance registration link.
