Celebrating Georgette Heyer

Pin It


If you're not feeling "quite the thing" this August, grab your pelisse or Hessian boots and join the readers of Austenprose for a Season of celebration for Georgette Heyer.
‘Celebrating Georgette Heyer’ at Austenprose – August 1st - 31st, 2010

Stylish, witty and historically accurate, novelist Georgette Heyer has been delighting readers with her romantic comedies for eighty-nine years. In honor of her birthday on August 16th, Austenprose.com www.austenprose.com will feature a month long event ‘Celebrating Georgette Heyer’ featuring thirty-four book reviews of her romance novels, guest blogs, interviews of Heyer enthusiast from the blog-o-sphere, academia and publishing and tons of great giveaways.

Our very special guests will be Heyer expert Vic Sanborn of Jane Austen’s World and Deb Werksman, acquiring editor of Sourcebook Casablanca and the catalyst in re-introducing Heyer to a new generation of readers.

The festivities start August first with a review of the newly re-issued Georgette Heyer’s Regency World, by Jennifer Kloester. Don’t be a wet goose. Chase away that fit of the blue-devils by attending this bon ton affair.
I'm very excited to have been asked to contribute to this extravaganza. Whether you're a dandy, rake, bit o-muslin or member of the ton, I hope to see you there!

  2. I haven't been introduced to Heyer yet, so this sounds like a great way to get started.
