Jane Austen featured on Penguin's multimedia site


Penguin has launched a really cool new multimedia site called “From the Publisher’s Office” featuring original audio and video programming. The Radio Room has launched in fine style with two Austen-related programs: a video interview of Austen scholar Juliette Wells talking about “Austenmania, what it means to be a Janeite, etiquette in Austen’s time, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” Also, Stephen Morrison, associate publisher and editor in chief of Penguin Books, launches his First Pages program with an examination of the opening of P&P. We haven’t had a chance to check it all out yet, but it looks great.
