Austen geeks take note

The people behind the upcoming film adaptation of The Jane Austen Book Club are currently running a contest with an excellent grand prize: a ticket to one of the 2008 JASNA-sponsored tours of England!

According to the sweepstakes homepage, the tour will "...offer access to homes and events not available to the general public, such as the annual meeting of the British Jane Austen Society held on the grounds of the manor house owned by Jane Austen's brother. Private teas, luncheons, and dinners in historic settings are also part of the tour. A British guide specializing in Austen and her era will accompany the group. The itinerary will center on Jane Austen's homes and places she visited, including Steventon, Bath, Chawton, Winchester, and London. Accommodations will be in first class and good tourist class hotels, with full breakfast daily. The group will travel in luxury air-conditioned motor coach."

That sounds worth the effort of filling out the form, doesn't it?

That movie poster (like everything ELSE Austen-related recently) looks totally cheesy. Why are all of these people trying to make Jane into a fluffy bunny?
