The fashions of the Regency Period, and Jane Austen’s literature in particular, will be the focus of the next Agawam Cultural Council Applause Series event on Friday, February 6, 2015 at 7:00 PM. Haddam Stage Company Artistic Director Kandie Carle will present Fashion in Fiction: Clothing Speaks Volumes in Jane Austen’s Novels at the Agawam Public Library.

Dressed in period correct attire, Carle, will dive into the Regency era with élan, discussing the clothing, accessories, manners, and etiquette of the time period, then share the numerous ways that Jane Austen used clothing and fashion to enhance character, delineate class, and propel plot in her fiction.

Part historical presentation, part literature examination, and 100% educational and FUN, Carle brings 30 years of experience in the theater and two decades of historical presentations as she engages the audience, fielding questions and adjusting content to the audience in attendance. This delightful show will feature “Elizabeth Bennet” and “Mr. Darcy” along with readings from Miss Austen’s letters and novels.

This presentation is appropriate for everyone – all ages, men, women, boys, and girls.

The Agawam Public Library is located at 750 Cooper Street in Agawam, Massachusetts and can be reached by phone at (413) 789-1550. This and all Applause Series events are free and open to the public.
