August 9th is the heroine of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, Anne Elliot’s birthday. You can be sure her snooty family never celebrated the date once her beloved mother passed on, So let’s celebrate this year.
If you would like to celebrate Anne Elliot’s birthday with me please create something with the theme of Persuasion, Anne, or another character or location from the book Persuasion. From the beach at Lyme, to Bath, to the dashing Captain Wentworth, or Anne herself, all is welcome. Try visual art, poetry, or even a photographed vignette.
If you would like to participate you can copy the picture above and use it as a gadget on the sidebar with a link to this post. Create your masterpiece and post it on August 9th. Come back to this post and comment that you are participating, along with the name of your blog, and I will link to your blog on August 9th so I have a list here that we can all visit.
Let’s make this fun and give Anne a special day!
