Regency Ball Dances the Night Away

On Saturday, February 17th, well dressed lords and ladies descended on Hoskins Library for an immersive experience that would have wowed even the stoic Mr. Darcy. In collaboration between the University of Tennessee English Department and First Take Co., Hoskins Library was transformed into a ballroom filled with some of Austen’s most beloved characters, dancing, and music. Plans are already in place for 2025, so be on the lookout for more information soon. Enjoy some of the highlights below!
