Attention Jane Austen Fans

*************PBS is featuring a Masterpiece Classic all-new Jane Austen miniseries. The matchmaking begins with "Emma" to be shown on Jan. 24th, Jan. 31st and Feb. 7th at 9/8c; "Northanger Abbey" on Feb. 14th at 9/8c; and "Persuasion" on Feb. 21st at 9/8c.

I learned of this miniseries when I passed the information desk at the library yesterday. I helped myself to one of a large stack of bookmarks available for library customers promoting these upcoming presentations.

I will definitely be tuning in to PBS to enjoy seeing these books written by Jane Austen brought to life. How about you?
(Interested in Jane Austen's book, "Pride and Prejudice"? If so, see my previous blog post).

I am right there with you! There's nothing better than seeing your favorite book on film. Thanks for letting me know about it. I'm going to set my DVR so I can watch them when my house is empty.

I thought I might find others who would enjoy these presentations. I don't watch much TV so I'm just lucky to have chanced upon this "all important" info. Enjoy!!

I could waste many a happy hour watching shows like this. In fact I have done often.
One of the great things about being here in the UK is the BBC, now I could say a lot about them that is annoying, but just as equally they are brilliant. They do costume dramas that are second to none, their film department are outstanding and they come up with some truly great dramas and classics.

Your right about my Grand-dad, he was amazing, it was a great experience to have had.
Much love

Lia: If we enjoy what we're doing, let's count it as time well spent. What do you say to that?

I'm happy that you get to enjoy the BBC's exceptional work.

Enjoy your day and the weekend, Lia.

Thank you for sharing this information. Rarely do I have the Television on so I would have missed this event if you had not brought it to my attention. I'll be tuning in for sure.
