Welcome to the Jane Austen InfoGuide!
This InfoGuide is dedicated to one of the English-language's most popular authors, Jane Austen. In honor of LSU Swine Palace Theatre's production of "Pride & Prejudice," we've put together this guide to all things Austen - her world, the enduring legacy of her works, and the numerous titles inspired by her. The Library has everything from paranormal Jane (Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, anyone?) to mysteries (e.g., Pride & Prescience) to modern-day takes on Austen's novels (see Me and Mr. Darcy), so look around and start your Austen education today!
