Penguin Classics Internet Programming Highlights Austen

It's hot outside...the perfect time to pull up to your computer for reading, viewing and listening INDOORS. Penguin Classics "On Air" offers programming that fits this bill quite nicely.  The latest addition to their literary library features Austen scholar William Deresiewicz, author of A Jane Austen Education: How Six Novels Taught Me About Love, Friendship, and the Things That Really Matter.  In two Internet programs, Professor Deresiewicz shares his thoughts about a male's perspective on Austen's writing as well as why he thinks Austen fans sometimes harbor misconceptions about Jane Austen's actual social status.  Baby, it's HOT outside, so treat yourself to some AC and lively conversation ideally suited for Janeites.
