Talk about Jane Austen January 17

This is an event that no Jane Austen fan will want to miss, whether you’re an expert or just a fan of one of the many movie adaptations made of her books. Speaking of movie adaptations, which ones are great and which ones are even better? Join an expert at historic Locust Grove to surround yourself in an Austen-era home, and participate in a fun talk about all those Austen-inspired movies based on one of her most beloved books.

The Jane Austen Movie Club

It’s been 200 years since Jane Austen wrote “Emma,” and movies are still being made based on the book. You may not realize how many times this story has been re-told, in fact. Did you know that “Clueless” was based on her Regency novel, for example?

Join a fun discussion about the various film adaptations of this book, which is about a matchmaker who finds out she’s really the one who wants love in her life. Be at historic Locust Grove at 2 pm to surround yourself in Austen-era living. The discussion lasts until 4:30 pm, so you have plenty of afternoon left to go exploring.

You’ll find this free event, and Locust Grove, at 561 Blankenbaker Lane. That's just a short distance from the Louisville Country Club, the Ohio River and the one-of-a-kind Indian Hills neighborhood. Go see what life along the river was like 200 years ago, and see what it's like in this part of Louisville today, too.

Apart to Life in Indian Hills

Want to live in a French country estate without moving away from Louisville? Maybe you'd like a traditional brick home that's picture-perfect? Or perhaps it's a contemporary ranch home that's more your style. You'll find all of these options, and more, in Indian Hills. This neighborhood is full of big homes made in all sorts of styles, so you can truly shop around for your dream home.
Many homes here are surrounded by pretty landscaping. You'll see plenty of flower beds and trimmed hedges throughout Indian Hills, but the entire neighborhood is known for its natural beauty. Streams and rock outcroppings give this part of the city a gorgeous look, and Indian Hills itself is next to a nature preserve because this area is so very beautiful. Some lots are far enough away and surrounded by enough nature to make you feel secluded and far away from the city, but Indian Hills is just a short drive away from lots of the city's biggest attractions.

After you explore some history this January, go get a look at Indian Hills and you may see your future.
