Reminder: Viva, a new t.v. channel that targets Canadian women between the ages of 40-64 will make its debut at 6:00 A.M. on November 3. According to a recent press release: "
"One of the highlights of VIVA's fall lineup is the Canadian premiere of Lost in Austen, a deftly post-modern four-part tale of a woman who worships the novels of Jane Austen and is suddenly transported one day to the world of Pride and Prejudice, swapping places with Elizabeth Bennet. A critical triumph in the U.K., Lost in Austen premieres on Sunday, November 9 at 8 p.m. ET. Each episode will be followed by a classic Jane Austen movie, starting with Sense and Sensibility, then Mansfield Park, Emma and Pride and Prejudice on the following Sundays."
I envy our lucky northern neighbors.

And a Jane Austen inspired hat from the Victorian Trading Company for $39.95, U.S.
I love the personal quality of these photos by Dana Palladino of her 2001 tour of Bath, England - you feel as if you're right there, as with this photo taken inside the Jane Austen Centre.
Tom Carpenter describes in Jane Austen's Regency World, a publication of the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, how Chawton cottage became a museum.
Mr. Carpenter is the museum's resident trustee. Read more about him and the museum in this JASA article and in 24 Hour Museum.
