Knit 1, Crochet 2

1st and 3rd Mondays of the Month
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM


Are you looking for other yarn addicts? Do your Monday nights seem dull? Look no further! Join us for a drop-in stitch-fest on the 1st Monday of each month.  Bring your project in & be inspired; if you’re a beginner, your local craft store can help you select a project & requisite supplies. There will be no formal instruction but ‘knitwits’ are a helpful bunch and love indoctrinating the uninitiated into the cult of knitting.

Austenmania!: The Appeal of the Regency Novelist in the Twenty-First Century

Tuesday June 24, 2014
7:00 PM until 8:15 PM


This presentation surveys the ways in which Jane Austen has been commodified over the past fifteen years, filtering into national currency, video games, housewares, and jewelry. Stephanie Harzewski explores the ‘why’ behind the popularity of this Regency era novelist and how examining the fetishism of Austen approximately two hundred years after her death offers clues not only into reading choices, but also larger aspects of contemporary society.

Stephanie Harzewski is a lecturer with the Department of English at the University of New Hampshire where she teaches contemporary British and American literature, and, more generally, British literature since 1800, as well as female sexuality and popular culture. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
