Zombies, Sea Monsters, Vampires and Jane Austen

If you like Jane Austen, or… sea monsters… you might be interested in checking out Jane Austen: The Author, Her Legacy and…Sea Monsters? on Tuesday, March 9 from 6:45 pm to 8:45 pm. It will feature three authors, Seth Grahame-Smith, New York Times best-selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies; Ben H. Winters, New York Times best-selling author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters; and Regina Jeffers, author of Vampire Darcy’s Desire and Darcy’s Passions as they talk about Austen the author and why her works have endured and inspired through the years.

Find out how to get $15 student tickets and more info over at the GW English Blog.

This event looks ridiculously cool — a perfect storm of Austen parodies.  We highly, highly, highly, recommend you go.  You could get all these books, and get them all signed.  Thanks to the GW English Blog for tipping us off to this event.
