JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB

celebrating Jane Austen-inspired Hallmark Channel Movies

Hallmark Channel’s Jane Austen inspired movies bring fans together to celebrate the timeless legacy of Jane Austen and the significance of stories centered around women. I had the pleasure of leading Hallmark Channel’s Book Clubs as we read and discussed Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.

This blog post is a wonderful celebration of Jane Austen, along with Hallmark Channel’s delightful Jane Austen movies, that we all love so much!

Jane Austen Movies & Book Club

Jane Austen is renowned as one of the most celebrated authors in history. She wrote about how women needed to get married to be respected and financially stable in 18th and 19th century British society. Her writing was very smart and gave important criticism about society. Even today, people still love to read her books!

The whole lineup for Loveuary 2024 was delightful Jane Austen-inspired movies and adaptations!

Unleashing Mr. Darcy (2016) and its sequel (2018) were such a delightful, modern take on Pride and Prejudice!

These charming Christmas movies put a fun and festive spin on Jane Austen's timeless novels.

Movie Character named Jenny

One of the most exciting and delightful rewards is having a Hallmark Movie Character named in honor of me! The folks at Hallmark Channel are aware of my profession as a librarian and my passion for literature, which is why they decided to name a character in Paging Mr. Darcy, a fresh take on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, after me!

Jenny, a graduate student, takes on the role of playwright and director for the Jane Austen play at the Jane Austen FanCon.

Jenny is a massive admirer of Jane Austen, just like myself! I also have a great passion for theater and was involved in high school theater, so this character truly resonates with me. A heartfelt thanks to Hallmark Channel for truly understanding me!

Hallmark Channel sent me actual props from Paging Mr. Darcy!

Jenny stars as Jane Austen and even uses the very same quill in the play! I've got copies of the play bill from the delightful show at JALA: The Complete Works of Jane Austen, abridged.

I've got Jenny's actual bonnet from the play, a cool JALA fan shirt, a tote bag from the Jane Austen League of America Annual Conference and Ball, plus the JALA event schedule with all the details, like the itinerary and info about the keynote speaker, Eloise Cavendish! How awesome is that?

The dance card is just too cute and looks incredibly authentic! The paper is real papyrus, just like the one Jane Austen used in her era. I'll definitely make sure to pencil in Mr. Darcy on my dance card!

In anticipation of the upcoming Loveuary🩷Jane Austen movies on Hallmark Channel in February 2024, I had the honor of leading Hallmark Channel’s Book Clubs as we read and discussed Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.

During the Loveuary🩷JaneAusten book clubs with Hallmark Channel, which I had the pleasure of hosting, we all came together as a community to read two of Jane Austen’s beloved books – Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.

As a result, I’ve ended up collecting both of these titles to commemorate the most surreal experience, hosting two Hallmark Channel Book Clubs!
