Join us for Regency historical fiction author Georgette Heyer’s Frederica:

Frederica Merrivale has come to London for the glittering social season, in order to give her beautiful younger sister Charis a chance to make a good marriage. The Merrivales, a family of solid social standing, have fallen into unhappy financial straits, and the marriage might deliver them from this situation. Frederica herself, a gay and witty charmer, is feared to be beyond marriageable age — she is twenty-four!

But when they are introduced to London society by their distant cousin, Lord Alverstoke, they find themselves both besieged by more suitors than they can possibly handle!


  1. Will attend.

  2. Wish I lived closer, I would be there with bells on! Any Georgette Heyer fans hoping for a film adaptation soon, my petition is here:

    • Thanks for posting that Jenny!

  3. Austen In Boston: A Jane Austen Book Club
    Jasna MA has it’s first meeting of the new season at 2pm. So, I have changed the time to 11:30am. Feel free to arrive whenever you can. -Kirk

  4. At last check, the weather guess for Sunday looks good. I’m suggesting that we meet at the same spot as two years ago. For those who did not attend 2yrs ago, I suggest entering the park via the Auto Museum entrance. 15 Newton St, Brookline. Pls go up the hill. As you start down the other side, there should be a parking lot on your right(if my feeble memory is right). We should meet there. Chairs or blankets would be a good idea. Note: There a classic car event at the Museum that day. That might cause some delays/parking issues. -Kirk
