Whether celebrated for her realism, proto-feminism, or patrician gentility, imagined as a subversive or a political conservative, Jane Austen generates passions shaped by the ideologies and trends of her readers' time—and by her own memorable stories, characters, and elusive narrative cool. Brownstein's brilliant discussion of the distinctiveness and distinction of Austen's genius clarifies the reasons why we read her. Come in costume dressed as Jane Austen or your favorite of her characters or novels — be creative! Jane Austen Society of North America, MA region, has generously donated two annual memberships which we will award to the best-dressed Janeite and the winner of our Austen trivia quiz. Or just join us for a lively discussion with your fellow Austen admirers. (bookconscious)
