Sometimes they fail.
But sometimes, like the super fun conversations we have in place of staid old interviews, they turn out better than I could have hoped, and best of all, they get you talking. (This excites me, as it's the whole reason I blog/vlog - book discussions are my happy place!)
|Yes, I did superimpose Jane Austen's head onto Snow White's body. MY WORLDS ARE COLLIDING.|
So if you're on twitter, I'd love for you to join in. There will be two chats, both on Wednesdays at 8pm EST. I realize this is late for some of you; with all of us Janeites scattered around the world, it's near impossible to make it work for everyone - please feel free to participate at your own pace. I will check back frequently and retweet/respond, etc!
- The first (tomorrow night!) will be a general chat, probably discussing reactions to Mansfield Park so far, but also just gushing about Jane, asking/answering silly questions, etc.
- The second, on August 28th, will be a movie-viewing party/chat session. We'll (or at least, I'll) be watching the 2007 version of Mansfield Park, and I'm sure at least one of you will trashtalk Billie Piper's eyebrows.
- To join in either of these chats, you just show up, follow the #AIATwitChat hashtag, and get to tweeting, retweeting and responding!
I seriously, seriously hope you guys will come join me in bringing some Austen to Twitter, but if you don't, it's ok - I've often said I could make conversation with a wall, so the whole of the internets should be no problem...
