Jane Austen

Jane Austen died on July 18, 1817 at the age of 41. 194 years ago today.   She changed the world with her pen.  Think of it – a relatively impoverished, old-maid pastor’s daughter – whose work was never really celebrated during her life – is one of the most published & adored authors today.  (Which reminds me, I need to pay my JASNA [Jane Austen Society of North America] dues.)
