The Calico Critic features “Young Jane Austen”

Lisa Pliscou and Young Jane Austen are featured on The Calico Critic, including a post from Lisa called “What Jane Read: A Turning Point,” describing a fascinating leap in Austen’s creative development as a child — during which she evolved from being a passive reader to a more critical, responsive one. This was a key step, and an exciting one, on her journey toward becoming a writer.
