Jane Austen on PBS tonight!

It seems that PBS is replaying the Masterpiece Classic Jane Austen series this year! According to the website, Persuasion will be broadcast tonight at 8 p.m. on KTEH, which is on Channel 9 and 54 in my area.

This will be the new (2008) adaptation with Sally Hawkins as Anne Elliott. Here is the web page for this adaptation:

It's really warm inside right now -- we don't have A.C. -- so I will have the windows open to catch the breezes, and a glass of iced tea at my side, as I watch this tonight!

No comments:

Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast,
Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round,
And, while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn
Throws up a steamy column, and the cups
That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each,
So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
-- William Cowper (1731-1800)
"The Winter Evening" (Book Four), _The Task_ (1784)
