Saratoga Arts and Edventures are pleased to announce a Jane Austen Tour that departs for England on April 25 and returns May 4, 2015. In keeping with Edventure’s mission of ‘Adventure Travel That Educates,” the trip will be led by Dr. David Shapard, a Jane Austen scholar. David is the author of The Annotated Pride and Prejudice as well as annotated versions of Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Emma. He has given numerous talks about Jane Austen to Austen societies and other groups and recently completed a visit to England to study gardens, estates, and other sites on the tour. Travelers will benefit from his vast knowledge of the areas we will visit as well as his enthusiasm and expertise in all things Jane.
Our visit will take travelers to the places where Jane lived or traveled, including ones that formed the setting of some of her stories, and to sites that reveal the world inhabited by her characters.
Old-fashioned villages, ancient churches and cathedrals, picturesque country walks, elegant Georgian town buildings, magnificent country houses, and beautiful landscaped grounds and gardens will all become living classrooms as we explore the sources she drew upon to create her beloved and timeless novels.
Do you want to receive more information? Come to a trip overview at Saratoga Arts on the Saturdays of Sept. 27 and Nov. 8 at 1:30 pm.
