The 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death is on July 18, 2017. Janeites have been celebrating their favorite novelist all year at Austen-themed festivals, picnics, and movie marathons, and of course, with obligatory rereading of Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park, and Sense and Sensibility. The British Royal Mint commemorated the anniversary by unveiling Austen’s portrait on its new £10 bill, making the novelist the only other woman to appear on Britain’s money other than Queen Elizabeth. Fans also have their pick of new biographies and perspectives, timed to memorialize Austen at 200. Here are the seven that caught our eye.
