Attending the library event last year on the Regency period inspired me to re-read the works of Jane Austen. As there are only six major books by Jane Austen this took no time at all. However, since the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice in the BBC mini series in 1995, there have been a large number of sequels written about the life of the Bennet sisters. While we do have a large number of the titles at the library, here are the ones I can recommend:
- The independence of Miss Mary Bennet by Collen McCullough
- Being Elizabeth Bennet: create your own Jane Austen adventure by Emma Campbell Webster
- Pemberley revisted by Emma Tennant
- A private performance by Helen Halstead
- An unequal marriage by Emma Tennant
For those Jane Austen fans in search of a good DVD, try Lost in Austen, which was recently featured on the ABC.
