Janet Lee's whimsical illustration from Emma

The Middle Tennessee Chapter of JASNA is delighted to feature artist and illustrator, Janet K. Lee, as our speaker for May's meeting. As the illustrator for the Marvel graphic novel versions of Emma and Northanger Abbey, Ms. Lee should bring many insights about the challenges of adapting Austen's work to the graphic novel format. According to Janet Lee's website, she has been "illustrating her life since she could hold a pencil." It sounds like her presentation should be a big hit for Middle TN Janeites!
