Join Us for the Celebration of the 200th Literary Anniversary of Emma's Box Hill Picnic

Emma, Picnic at Box Hill by Jane Odiwe, used by permission

        This year's Box Hill Picnic remains in a rustic setting that would make Emma and all her Highbury friends take notice!  

Wear sturdy shoes (or pattens if needed), a Regency costume would be a nice touch but is not necessary, and bring a sweet or savoury treat to share.  

Activities will include partaking of afternoon tea, conversation with old and new friends, walking country lanes, and dancing on the green (weather permitting).  

We shall be a merry party as the geese will protect us from intruders, the guinea fowl will amuse us, and the chickens will run amuck!

The site of our country frolic is Vicki Jones's home
22400 NE 112th St., Liberty, MO 64068 (Actually on google Maps!)
