Jane builds bridge to women's writing
A woman engineer has spanned the Arts–Science divide
with her ground-breaking work on a centre for early English
Multi-skilled Jane Alderson designed the foundations of the QE11
Bridge for the M25 Motorway near London. Now she's digging into
her intellectual resources to support the pioneering archive and
study centre for early English women's writing at the Chawton
House Library, Hampshire. The Chawton Estate was once owned by
Jane Austen's brother, Edward.
Jane will describe Chawton's achievements for an audience
hosted by The Bookworms Club at The Sha'arei Shalom North
Manchester Reform Synagogue in Whitefield, Bury, to include
representatives of libraries, academics and students from local
colleges and schools along with members of reading and writers'
Yorkshire-born Jane (42), who has also enjoyed a high-profile
position in finance with the European bank, ABN AMRO, says of
her latest role: "building and restoration takes me back to
my engineering; a large house and estate appeals to the romantic
in me; a rare opportunity to become involved in something a bit
out of the ordinary and the literary and academic side holds a
fascination for me, as I love to read and learn."
Chawton's financial backer is US businesswoman Sandy Lerner,
a co-founder of Cisco Systems, the field-leader in the
development of communication over the Internet.
The event will be opened by Mr Ivan Lewis, MP for Bury South
and a Minister for Education while the well-known novelist,
Sherry Ashworth, also based in Bury, will express thanks.
The event is at the Synagogue, Elms Street, Whitefield, on
Saturday March 20 (8.00 PM).
