Faculty Lecture Series
“Face to Face with Jane Austen”
by Professor of English, Juliette Wells
Wednesday, April 11th
Library, Manhattanville College
Congratulations to Professor Juliette Wells on the publication of her new book, Everybody's Jane: Austen in the Popular Imagination.
View advance reviews on the website of the publisher, Continuum.
Inspiration for Professor Wells' book came out of her courses on Austen, including her First-Year Seminar on Pride and Prejudice and my English course "Jane Austen and Popular Culture." Research for the book was made possible by a sabbatical leave and summer grants.
A celebration of the book's publication took place on Wed., April 11th, at 7 p.m., in the Current Periodicals Room of the Library, as part of the Library's Faculty Lecture Series. Juliette gave a presentation, titled "Face to Face with Jane Austen," on the topic of recent portraits of Austen. Books were available for purchase and signing.
