The classic that I read this month was Emma by Jane Austen.
Who is the author? Jane Austen
What do they look like?
When were they born? December 16, 1775 in Hampshire, England
Where did they live? Jane lived until the age of 28 at the Steventon Rectory in Hampshire where her father was a clergyman. After he retired from the clergy, she lived the remainder of her life with her family in Bath.
What is an interesting and random fact about their life? The seventh of eight children of the Reverend George Austen and his wife, Cassandra, she was educated mainly at home and never lived apart from her family. To amuse themselves, the Jane and her siblings wrote and performed plays and charades, and even as a little girl Jane was encouraged to write. The reading that she did of the books in her father's library provided material for the short stories she wrote as a girl.
