The Joy of Jane: Thoughts on the First 200 Years of Austen’s Legacy (2017)

In 2017 the literary world will commemorate the 200th anniversary of the death of Jane Austen in a year packed with exhibitions, talks, walks and performances – as well as her appearance on the British £10 note.

Although there were only six completed novels, Jane Austen left an enormous legacy when she died on July 18, 1817, at the age of only 41. The Joy of Jane brings together some of today’s leading writers and authorities on Jane Austen to offer their thoughts on her endearing appeal.

Heyer Society contributors Susannah Fullarton and Ruth Williamson have essays in this literary, thoughtful and now hard-to-find celebration of the great Jane Austen.
