Calling all Jane Austen fans!
The Jane Austen Society of North America, Connecticut Region is happy to bring author and lecturer, Dr. Juliette Wells to the Russell Library. A dynamic speaker, Dr. Wells will be sharing her presentation "A History of Austen in America in 14 Objects���. The JASNA-CT region received a Traveling Lecturers Grant from the national organization to bring Dr. Wells to CT.
After undergraduate studies at Johns Hopkins and Peabody, Dr. Wells earned her PhD in English literature from Yale. She joined the Goucher College faculty in 2012 and taught courses on British literature, women’s writing, and Jane Austen. For Penguin Classics, she created reader-friendly 200th-anniversary editions of Austen’s novels Persuasion (2017) and Emma (2015), both of which feature images from Goucher’s world-renowned Austen collection. Dr. Wells is also the author of two books on Austen’s readers—Everybody’s Jane: Austen in the Popular Imagination (2011) and Reading Austen in America (2017). As of 2018, she is the Elizabeth Conolly Todd Distinguished Professor of English in the Center for the Humanities at Goucher College, Baltimore Maryland.
