On a Hot Summer Night - A Pride & Prejudice Slumber Party


Join Big Blue Marble and special guests for a classic slumber party (that is, one with no actual slumbering) as we let our love for Pride & Prejudice shine. We have all kinds of fun planned:

  • Guest readers who will serenade us with Austen's lovely prose
  • A choose-your-own-adventure version of the story
  • An official drink (elderflower spritzers, wine and plain) for an official Austen drinking game (tip your cup every time Mrs. Bennet makes you cringe...)
  • Needlework! Bring your own, or try your hand at a simple Jane Austen portrait cross stitch we'll have available
  • Trivia
  • A dramatic reading of texts from the Bennet girls to Mrs. Bennet
  • A Show Us Your Cover show and tell
  • And more!

Come in your sweats, your jammies, or your Regency Finest. Bring sleeping bags/pads if you like (we have great floor pillows).
