Walking in the Footsteps of Jane Austen


One of the unexpected joys I experienced while writing my newest book, Jane Austen for Kids, was to be able to travel to England and walk in the footsteps of our beloved Jane.

One of the most memorable days I spent was when our JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America) tour bus took us to visit Chawton Cottage, the home Jane lived in as an adult, St. Nicholas, the church she attended with her family while living there, and Chawton House, the mansion she walked to frequently to visit her wealthy brother and favorite niece, Fanny Knight.

Would you like to see photographs I took as I walked the Jane Austen trail that day? Then hop on over to the delightful and informative blog that’s hosted by Vermont’s chapter of JASNA. CLICK HERE to visit the wonderful site, Jane Austen in Vermont.
