happy_birthday_cakeThe team at Open Road reminded me that today, Monday, December 16, marks what would have been Jane Austen’s 238th birthday, and to commemorate this legendary author, they’ve two presents for you to share with your readers:

  • Jane Austen meets Mean Girls, Austin Powers, and Groundhog Day. Sound too good to be true? It’s not! They have all come together to help you figure out 7 ways to celebrate Jane Austen’s birthday.
  • Matchmaking, like stormy weather, class disputes, and Lydia Bennet, runs rampant in Jane Austen’s novels, and we here at Open Road have decided to try our hand at this very Austen activity. We’ve matched up some of Austen’s most beloved characters with an array of picks from contemporary literature across all genres, including works by Gloria Steinem, Barbara Pym, and Dorothy Sayers to name a few. So, Austen fans: Meet Your Match.
