Today and tomorrow at VVB32 Reads, there is a most interesting event in progress: "Mr. Knightley's Picnic". Here is the official invitation:
Mr. Knightley's Picnic
February 25-26, 2010
An event post will be up every hour from 5am - 5pm PST (join in anytime)
Don't mind the snow or rain storms outside. Grab your picnic basket of goodies and join me for a virtual Regency period picnic hosted by the dashing hero from Jane Austen's Emma, Mr Knightley. The sky will be clear at Mr Knightley's estate, Donwell, and fun times shall be had.
I should mention that Mr. Knightley is an eligible bachelor at this event. Here's your chance to meet and dazzle him with your charms (a-hem) ;-D
Be prepared for:
- guest posts
- interesting encounters (could be of the other-worldly sort)
- and yesssss, giveaways

According to Jane by Marilyn Brant
Other surprise books to be mentioned during the event
To prepare for the festivities, you may want to read Emma by Jane Austen or watch any of the movie adaptations as a quick refresher.
Sounds fun, doesn't it?! I just so happen to know about one of those "interesting encounters"...so pop on over if you have a chance, grab a strawberry tartlet and take a look around. As new posts are added, there will indeed be further surprises and many virtual treats ;).
