In 2011, exactly 200 years since the publication of Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen (portrayed by Dr. Lynda Hall) will pay a visit to Chapman University. She will consider what has happened with her novels, her “own darling child[ren],” during the past two centuries. Jane will contemplate the history of “Janeites,” the waves of her popularity, the films and television programs, the written sequels and continuations of her novels, and even the recent “monster mash-up” publications in which she is listed as co-author (with no share in the royalties). Join Jane Austen as she visits southern California and confronts the legacy of her writing.
