It is my distinct pleasure to welcome Jane Austen to Oahu as part of Sourcebooks' promotion, Around the World with Jane Austen:
In the June memoir, All Roads Lead to Austen, the author Amy Elizabeth Smith took Jane Austen’s works along with her as she traveled to foreign countries. Her goal was to see if the magic of Jane Austen could hold its power across borders, languages and cultures.
