LITCHFIELD, Conn. - Jan. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Come discover just how important fashion was 200 years ago with historical performance artist Kandie Carle.  In this presentation, Ms. Carle will take the audience on a journey of discovery by using the clothing and accessories of Jane Austen’s era to share insights into the lifestyle, manners, etiquette and customs of the time.

While dressed in authentic Regency attire, Ms. Carle will explain how each layer of clothing was worn, as well as when and where it was appropriate.  Reading from Jane Austen’s personal letters and passages from some of her novels, she will highlight how Austen used clothing and fashion to define character and class, enhance story line, and develop plot points. Included are interesting anecdotes and ‘myth busting’, as well as audience interaction.

Kandie Carle has been working in the theatre since 1980 as an actress, dancer and singer throughout the U.S. and abroad. Her resume covers the spectrum from Shakespeare to Musical Comedy.  Her love of history, years of research and experience as a performer has culminated in the creation of several one-woman shows.  Since 1996, she has been touring with this program and has entertained audiences throughout New England and beyond.

All Oliver Wolcott Library events are free and open to the public.  Space is limited.  Registration is required and can be done by calling 860-567-8030 or logging onto and clicking on Programs/Adult Programs.
