Beloved novelist Jane Austen died on this day in 1817.

In honor of the occasion, we present a few new-to-the-newswire items about the Pride and Prejudice author, along with several oldies-but-goodies.

Literary Hub alerted us to a room-by-room video tour of Jane Austen’s House, now a museum, on YouTube; we’ve embedded that below.

Lit Hub has another image-heavy Austen post for your viewing pleasure: an excerpt from Why She Wrote: A Graphic History of the Lives, Inspiration, and Influence Behind the Pens of Classic Women Writers.

The passage from Why She Wrote contains Hannah K. Chapman and Lauren Burke’s writing about the period during which Austen struggled to write, along with Kaley Bales’s illustrations.
