jane austen library display

July 18, 2017 marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. Although Austen only wrote 6 novels, her influence has grown steadily since her lifetime. She is acknowledged as a significant author in English literature, and literary criticism about her work can be found in countless books and journal articles. Her work has been adapted into films, television and stage productions. Continuations, modernizations and other adaptations of her novels are published regularly. Her devotees are all over the world and many are members of the Jane Austen Society of North America,  the Jane Austen Society of the UK, and the Jane Austen Society of Australia. The library display highlights materials from our collection along with a few personal items from the library's resident Janeite.
