This post was originally shared on June 22, 2012


Our friends at JASNA - New York Metro Region shared this last week:
Two podcasts (audio) from Oxford's Bodleian Library series featuring Kathryn Sutherland speaking on Jane Austen and what we can learn from her manuscripts about her life, writing style and techniques: Jane Austen Podcasts.
I've included the first podcast listed: Jane Austen's Manuscripts Explored
Professor Kathyrn Sutherland from the University of Oxford talks around the manuscripts of Jane Austen, what we can learn from them about her family life but also her writing style and techniques.

I suggest checking out the rest of the podcasts, they are great discussions.

Monday Book Recommendation: Night and Day

Night and Day

Title: Night and Day
Author: Virgina Woolf
Publication Date: October 20, 1919

Synopsis: Katharine Hilbery is beautiful and privileged, but uncertain of her future. She must choose between becoming engaged to the oddly prosaic poet William Rodney, and her dangerous attraction to the passionate Ralph Denham. As she struggles to decide, the lives of two other women - women's rights activist Mary Datchet and Katharine's mother, Margaret, struggling to weave together the documents, events and memories of her own father's life into a biography - impinge on hers with unexpected and intriguing consequences. Virginia Woolf's delicate second novel is both a love story and a social comedy, yet it also subtly undermines these traditions, questioning a woman's role and the very nature of experience.

Review:  Here are two reviews for you to check out:
