Lights, Camera, Austen: the screen adaptations of Jane Austen


Wednesday December 13, 2017: 7:00pm to 8:30pm  Add to Calendar


Westgate Branch: West Side Room


U-M graduate student instructor Anne Mecklenburg will discuss the many, many adaptations of Jane Austen's work. Have you seen every Jane Austen miniseries multiple times? Remain devoted to the Greer Garson/Laurence Olivier Pride and Prejudice? Really liked that one with the zombies? Loved Clueless? No matter your favorite, this event is a chance to learn more about the history and context of Jane Austen novels on film. Naturally, we'll be watching a lot of clips!

This event is a partnership with the University of Michigan The Life and Times of Lizzy Bennet Exhibit.
