Please join me in congratulating Karen vanMeenen of Rochester, New York, the Grand Prize Winner from the US in The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen Sweepstakes 2016. She has won a fantastic Grand Prize trip for two to the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage City of Bath, England, to attend the Jane Austen Festival in September 2016.
Karen’s Grand Prize includes round-trip economy class air travel for two to London; a one-night hotel stopover in London; two round-trip train tickets to Bath; a three-night stay with daily breakfast for two at Three Abbey Green, a Four Star Gold Award guest house in the heart of Central Bath; free two-day admittance to the Jane Austen Festival in Bath, which is famous for being Austen’s one-time home; a tour of Bath and the surrounding countryside including Jane Austen’s house, the famous Bath Abbey, Roman Baths, the iconic Pulteney Bridge and Weir, Royal Crescent and King’s Castle among other sites.
Needless to say, I’m looking forward to sitting down for tea with Karen along with our UK winner Vicki Smith.
If you didn’t win one of our fantastic Grand Prizes, please don’t despair. As a special thank you to all of you who entered our sweepstakes we are offering a special discounted price ($11.50 for paperback; $19.50 for hardcover) for a limited time on your purchase of The Marriage of Miss Jane Austen from Jane Austen Books.
