April 13, 2019: Linda Zionkowski lecture at the Mercantile Library, Cincinnati

Join us to hear "Plans of Economy in Persuasion" presented by Linda Zionkowski. Were you unable to attend the last AGM and therefore missed Linda’s excellent talk? Were you there, and just loved it? Either way, join us for this rare opportunity to hear an excellent, well received AGM talk at the local level! Members who attend are requested to bring a ‘tea lunch’ (finger foods) food item to share – or if you prefer, a jug of iced tea. This event is FREE to both JASNA Dayton and Mercantile Library members – so join us for a nosh and to hear what Kansas City AGM attendees raved about! Guests may attend as well for $10 each.

Linda Zionkowski is a Professor of English at Ohio University, and most recently author of Women and Gift Exchange in Eighteenth-Century Fiction: Richardson, Burney, Austen. Along with Miriam Hart, she has published several essays on the role of domestic music in Austen's life, culture, and novels.

Check in and pot luck starts at 2 p.m., with the lecture starting afterward.

Guests are welcome at $10 each, payable at the door by cash or check made payable to JASNA Dayton.
