“Love and Friendship”—A Mother’s Day Tea with Jane Austen

The Sierra Madre Woman’s Club and Sierra Madre Public Library cordially invite you to our third annual Mother’s Day Tea on Saturday, May 7, from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m., at the Woman’s Club Clubhouse, 550 W. Sierra Madre Blvd, in Sierra Madre. 

This year we are pleased to present Mary Burkin performing as Jane Austen, beloved author of Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice.  Austen’s timeless themes, keen insight into human nature, and astute, often piercing social commentary have made her one of the most widely read authors in English literature. 

“Miss Austen” will be reading from her own works, and sharing congenial family stories and tidbits of neighborhood gossip.

A traditional afternoon high tea follows the program, complete with fruits, sweets and savories, prepared and served by members of the Woman’s Club.

The cost is $20.00 for adults and $8.00 for youth under 17.  Tickets may be purchased at the Sierra Madre Public Library, 440 W. Sierra Madre Boulevard in Sierra Madre, and at the Woman’s Club at the above address.

For more information, please 626-355-7186, or visit www.sierramadre.lib.ca.us. This event is co-sponsored by The Woman’s Club and Sierra Madre Public Library. Proceeds will benefit Woman’s Club charities.
