Audience Rating: 



Character Age: 



This year's Literary Appreciation Society enjoyed a great term of reading and recitation; especially our graduating class. The author the girls chose to celebrate this year was Jane Austin-Healy, the famed 19th century author of such classics as Prada and Prejudice, Incense and Stability, Almay, and Purse Suede Fun! You may recall many of the quotes here in; the girls both enjoyed reading them and...on occasion...portraying them. Our 2012 Graduating Class Literary Appreciation Society....

This was one of the nicest presentations.

that each of the other two were actually "GG's,"
as Archie likes to put it. What fun!!!

and finally...
Oh bugger it all, I like corsets_0.jpg
While some found the required attire for the presentation somewhat restrictive,
Allan and Garret were just fine. Allan was heard to exclaim off-mike
"Oh hell, I just love corsets."
