Pride & Possibilities: Caroline Knight talk

Caroline Jane Knight, Jane Austen’s fifth great niece, talks about her family’s library at Chawton House, Caroline’s childhood home, the inspiration behind the Jane Austen Literacy Foundation.

The eclectic collection put together over centuries, was inherited by Jane’s brother Edward and Jane herself enjoyed access to the same library during the most productive period of her writing career. Hear how Caroline would sneak into the family library at night to look at the books and the family bookplates and discover why, despite hours of searching, Caroline was unable to find copies of Jane’s novels in the collection.
