Welcome to the home of the Republic of Pemberley.  This is our second move since 2014 and  is our final attempt to retrench. In this newer, more streamlined place, you will find that some things have changed and some remain the same.

Since Bath’s Jane Austen Festival was cancelled this year due to COVID, the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution is working with the Jane Austen Centre to host a virtual Jane Austen week, starting this Monday the 28th! Every day throughout the week, there will be videos and interactive live lectures focusing on different aspects of Jane Austen’s personal life and literature. Those who are interested can look at the list of events (linked here: Rediscovering Jane Austen at the BRLSI  and attend any they’d like! Most events are free, but the interactive live lectures will require small donations – no more than a few pounds or dollars each.

The Pemberley Shoppe has added a new section for Jane Austen Face Masks. If you would like something that doesn’t appear, contact manager@pemberley.com and we’ll try to make it for you.

We have added Love & Freindship, an archive or our community’s response the events of September 11, 2001. Thanks to Kathleen (elder) for creating this document from our old forum.

This page is your front door.  The menu bar under the header has drop-down menus that will take you to any page on the site.  This drop down menus will appear at the top of every page with the exception of of our HTML pages.

We have closed our discussion boards and have opened up a Facebook Discussion Group. Join us there. We’ll still be talking about the same things.

Our Life and Times archives is being used to populate the L&T Knowledge Base (on the Special Jane Austen Pages menu). This is a work in progress. Please bear with us.

Many of the subsidiary pages will look familiar. Some won’t.  Don’t hesitate to email manager@pemberley.com if you have any questions.

Although it’s a bit smaller, we’ve worked hard to make this new site even better than the old one while preserving as much of the Pemberley look as possible. We hope you continue to enjoy it.
