If you google the above title you will find details of many events being held this year in England to mark the bicentenary of Jane Austen's death in Winchester on 18 July 2017.

Some of the main events (but please check their websites for confirmation) are:

British Library, London - 10 January to 19 February 2017

Bodleian Library, Oxford - 22 June to 29 October 2017

Winchester Discovery Centre - 13 May to 24 July 2017

Jane Austen's House Museum, Chawton - which reopens on 3 March 2017 and is open for almost all of the rest of the year.

See also my other thread of today entitled 'Lucy Worsley's Guardian article on Jane Austen' which gives further information on these events. .
