Austen Mondays is sponsored by Lisa Washington

The Rosenbach’s new biblioventure series will focus on Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Join us for a deep-dive into this classic novel for 24 weeks beginning September 19, 2022. We’re also moving the show to Monday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. For the first half hour of every episode host Edward G. Pettit will interview scholars and Janeites about all things Austen, then will lead a conversational annotation of a chapter or two of Pride and Prejudice. Along with co-hosts Dr. Lauren Nixon, Dr. Kathleen Hudson, and Kathryn MacMillan, together we’ll examine why and how Pride and Prejudice continues to be one of the most beloved books of readers everywhere.

The Rosenbach holds a first edition of Pride and Prejudice published in 1813, as well as the first American edition, entitled Elizabeth Bennet; or, Pride and Prejudice, published in 1832 in Philadelphia. Over the 24 weeks of the series, we will tell the stories of these items from our collections, analyze the novel, and enjoy spirited conversations with many experts on Jane Austen and her works (and adaptations, of course).

All are welcome to join us in this one-of-a-kind biblioventure live every Monday (or watch the replay videos) beginning September 19, 2022 and running until March 20, 2023.
