Jane Austen's not so happy mothers' day

Some of those who've ever wondered how so many of JA's fictional mothers died prematurely might be interested to attend my breakout session at the upcoming JASNA AGM to be held over Halloween weekend in Portland, Oregon, where my topic will be " 'Remember the country and age in which we live": The Covert Death-in-Childbirth Anti-parody in Northanger Abbey".

If anyone would like to discuss this particular subject further with me before then, fire away!

Cheers,
Arnie
