You are cordially invited to take tea with a favorite author of the fall, Jo Baker. In Jo Baker's new novel, Longbourn, an irresistibly imagined belowstairs answer to Pride and Prejudice, the servants take center stage. Sarah, the orphaned housemaid, spends her days scrubbing the laundry, polishing the floors, and emptying the chamber pots for the Bennet household. But there is just as much romance, heartbreak, and intrigue downstairs at Longbourn as there is upstairs. When a mysterious new footman arrives, the orderly realm of the servants’ hall threatens to be completely, perhaps irrevocably, upended. Learn more about the book, revel in all things Regency, and enjoy a nice cuppa at our tea with the author. Tea, treats, and uplifting conversation provided. Books available for purchase and inscription. Special thanks to neighborhood partner Cederberg Tea House for providing the refreshments!
