Jane Austen

The family of Jane Austen lived east of the New Forest, which Jane Austen visited. In the 'Albion Park' chapter of THE FOREST, Fanny Albion the heroine, like Jane Austen herself, is taken to the fashionable spa of Bath, where she is accused of theft and put on trial. The circumstances of this trial closely follow a similar scandal involving Jane Austen's aunt.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
New York City’s Blackout of 1977. The first day in one of its longest and hottest heat waves on record brought about many of New York’s deep rooted issues – namely economic decline and growing crime – and plunged the city into darkness for 25 hours. Though the streets emptied of traffic, arson, looting and rampant crime threw the city into disarray. To this day, July 13, 1977 is remembered as one of the most infamous days in New York’s history.
