Afternoon Seminar on Jane Austen’s Emma – SOLD OUT

We are excited to again offer an afternoon literary seminar in 2020. Jane Austen makes her debut at Toronto Pursuits, believe it or not, with her 1815 novel Emma—a book that the Guardian says “changed the face of fiction.” More details to come soon.

This seminar meets from 3 to 5 p.m. from July 13 to 17. The cost is C$200 for those already signed up for the full Toronto Pursuits program and C$400 for those taking the seminar as a standalone option. The standalone option includes the seminar, our after-lunch talks and all evening activities. Lunch can be purchased as an add-on. See the main Toronto Pursuits page for full details on dates, costs, and registration.
