Are you a Janeite longing to bask in the joyous fellowship of others who share your passion but unable to because sadly there is no Miami-Dade or Broward chapter of the Jane Austen Society of North America?
Books & Books is here to help. At 4 p.m. Sunday the Coral Gables store will host its first ever meeting of Janeites, who until this time had to drive all the way to West Palm Beach to celebrate the fabulousness of the beloved British writer. That's enough to ruffle anyone's petticoats.
If you're not sure whether you're a Janeite or not, here's an easy test to determine your Janeite status: Have you watched the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth more than twice? And did you rewind the scene where Mr. Darcy jumps in the pond in the flowing white shirt? If so, there's a good chance you will be among friends Sunday.
Books & Books is located at 265 Aragon Ave. in Coral Gables.
