Living Rooms | The Jane Austen Reading Room

Exhibition Website

Nov 21 2015 - Apr 2 2017

This installation situates one of the greatest authors of English literature, Jane Austen, in a unique period room setting. Taking up two of Mia’s well-loved English interiors—the Queen Anne room and the Georgian Drawing room—this display will discuss Austen’s habits as a reader and writer, recreate scenes from her novel Emma (celebrating its 200th birthday in 2015), and invite museum visitors to read works that Austen read, wrote, or inspired.
