200th Anniversary of the Publication of Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen's famous and immensely popular novel of manners and matrimony
was first published on January prideandprejudice28, 1813. Fans of the author and her works will be celebrating all year. A re-creation of the Netherfield Ball, where Elizabeth and Darcy danced and bickered, will be held at Chawton House in England and filmed by the BBC for later broadcast, and other Jane Austen groups and societies are planning their own commemorative events. Plan to re-read the book or, at least, watch one of the many film adaptations. You will be excessively diverted!
