Happy 200th Anniversary, Pride and Prejudice!

January marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's classic novel, Pride and Prejudice.  Austen has always had her fans but her novels seem to be increasing in popularity in the last few decades and for good reason.  At its heart, Pride and Prejudice is a profound story about the nature of individual identity, the implication of gender roles, the issues of nature vs. nurture, and the disparity of appearance vs. reality.  All of these themes are relatable to modern day life making it the perfect time to read this classic for the first time or fall in love with it all over again!
