Mansfield Park Madness Begins @ Austenprose
Jane Austen’s most mysteriously misunderstood novel will be given a fair shake as the blog Austenprose endeavours to unravel it’s charms and short-comings (are there any?) in a 17 day blog event, Mansfield Park Madness, August 15-31, 2008. This Mansfield Park 101 will feature discussions of the novel, movie adaptations and book sequels geared for the novice reader, but also open to all levels of literature lovers and Janeites alike.
Amazingly, there will also be 17 days of great give-aways of books, movies and Jane Austen ephemera to the lucky winners. To qualify for the daily drawings, just join in the conversation by leaving a comment in a post. The complete details are available here.
Don’t miss out on your chance for all the fun discussions and give-aways at Mansfield Park Madness. Please join us - because gentle Fanny Price has requested your attendance and does not want to be viewed as insipid any longer!
Cheers, Laurel Ann, Austenprose
