Austen in America tells the story of America's long love-affair with Jane Austen and her work. Beginning with the first US edition of Emma, published in Philadelphia in 1816, Juliette Wells – author of Everybody's Jane: Austen in the Popular Imagination – goes on to explore Austen's American publication history, correspondence with readers through the ages and the work of curators, promoters and fans of Austen in the 21st century.
Juliette Wells is Associate Professor and Chair of English at Goucher College, USA. She is the author of Everybody's Jane: Austen in the Popular Imagination (Bloomsbury, 2011) and Editor of the Penguin Classics 200th anniversary edition of Jane Austen's Emma (2015).
