Jane Austen’s Birthday

Happy Birthday Jane Austen!

Birthday Cake

Jane Austen was born on December 16, 1775 in Steventon, a rural village of Hampshire, England. She lived until 1817. The author of a number of novels, it’s easy to honor Jane Austen’s birthday by reading something she wrote.

Her character Emma even had great advice for those awkward moments in the elevator:

“Nobody speaks except ourselves, and it is rather too much to be talking nonsense for the entertainment of seven silent people.” – Jane Austen, Emma
