Austenland, USA July 30, 2007

Posted by sneaks in adult, display topics, DVDs, fiction, nonfiction.

According to the Boston Globe, “Her novels have no sex or violence, and are 200 years old, yet Hollywood can’t get enough of them”

Who are they talking about? Why, Jane Austen, of course. Beth Reinker in Collection Development sends us this terrific suggestion for movie-related merchandizing this summer:

There are two Jane Austen related movies coming out in Aug./Sept. (The Jane Austen Book Club, based on the novel by Karen Joy Fowler, and Becoming Jane, starring Anne Hathaway as the novelist), and I’ve been seeing a lot of new Jane Austen related materials coming out.

It might be a good opportunity for branches to merchandise some of these things together with some of Austen’s novels.

Here are a few of the new titles I’ve seen lately:

Confessions of a Jane Austen AddictLaurie Viera Rigler
Me and Mr. DarcyAlexandra Potter
Lost in AustenEmma Campbell Webster
Austenland Shannon Hale
Just JaneNancy Moser

Becoming JaneAnne Newgarden
Dear Jane AustenPatrice Hannon


  • Persuasion
  • Emma
  • Clueless
  • Mansfield Park
  • Sense and Sensibility
  • Pride and Prejudice
  • Bride and Prejudice
