“A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing and the modern languages….”-Pride and Prejudice, chapter 8  Marie Josephine Charlotte du Val d’Ognes painted by Marie Denis Villers in 1801  During these trying times, practice your drawing skills with adult coloring pages. We have assembled some coloring pages on our blog from Genesee Country Village & Museum and British artist Pam Pell Jones.  We have also reviewed a score of professionally published Jane Austen coloring books and have found the following to be the best.  

Pride and Prejudice: A Coloring Classic by Chellie Carroll (illustrator) 

Classic Coloring: Jane Austen: 55 Removable Coloring Plates by Abrams Noterie
Where’s Jane?: Find Jane Austen Hidden in Her Stories by Rebecca Smith (not a coloring book) 

Practice for your next ball with country dances created especially for one person. 

Lady Susan Triad Stage in Greensboro, NC is doing a staged reading of Lady Susan. Each week they post a video of five of the chapters.  The link is for the first of three already posted.
