Brazos Bookstore’s celebration of Jane Austen, launched to honor the 200th anniversary of Austen’s death has reached what Brazos’s marketing director, Sara Balabanlilar, called “the quintessential event” of the Summer of Austen: the Jane Austen wake on July 18, the day Austen died. The evening includes a performance by Main Street Theater, enacting scenes from Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice, and refreshments. And remember, if you break out your finest Regency dress, you get 10 percent off your purchase.
