Austen power

In June the Royal Society of Literature had a very special fundraising auction with a Jane Austen theme. Items to bid for ranged from handwritten notes specially penned for the auction – Kazuo Ishiguro on Mansfield Park, Sarah Waters on Northanger Abbey, Jacqueline Wilson on Pride and Prejudice – to an Austen cartoon by Posy Simmonds and the chance to have Austen expert Claire Harman or John Mullan as a guest at your book club. Other items included a weekend away in the heart of Jane Austen’s Hampshire, Deborah Moggach’s screenplay, complete with her own annotations, for the 2005 feature film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, and a signed first edition of Alexander McCall’s retelling of Emma. There was also a live auction with lots including Andrew Davies’ annotated TV script for Pride and Prejudice, an original, handwritten short story by Hilary Mantel based on the same book, and the opportunity to have tea with Austen expert Lucy Worsley.
