Non-JASNA Events

The events listed below are a small selection of upcoming events that may be of interest to Janeites. These events are not organized by JASNA or its Regions. 

Austen in Austin

Are original or illustrated editions of a novel more important than cheaper reprints that are merely read and discarded? The landmark Austen in Austin exhibit at the Ransom Center (University of Texas at Austin) explores this question, displaying cheap, mass-market reprints of Austen's six novels alongside priceless first editions and other valuable versions for the first time. The inexpensive and accessible editions, printed on shoddy paper and sold in railway stations or given as school prizes, may have made Austen popular long before she was considered great. Learn more about the exhibit in the blog post by Curator Janine Barchas, Professor of English at The University of Texas at Austin and author of The Lost Books of Jane Austen (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2019). Austen in Austin is on view through January 5, 2020. Admission is free.
