In the June memoir from Sourcebooks Inc., All Roads Lead to Austen the author Amy Elizabeth Smith took Jane Austen’s works along with her as she traveled to foreign countries. Her goal was to see if the magic of Jane Austen could hold its power across borders, languages and cultures.

 Amy took Jane to far off countries – and Sourcebooks needs your help to take her even further! They are holding a contest called All Around the World with Jane! Join them on their Austen love fest by printing out their Jane Austen “flat Stanley.” Take pictures of yourself with Jane in your hometown or on your vacation, and submit it from April 30th – June 30th!

They will award the following prizes to the individuals with the most creative picture:

1 Grand Prize Winner will receive:

  • An E-reader with all of Sourcebooks Inc. available Austen
    sequels/continuations downloaded on to it
  • A signed copy of All Roads Lead to Austen

You can then submit your pictures on the All Around the World with Jane Facebook page or email your submission to landmark@sourcebookspr.com and be a winner of the game. Winning in this competition is just like a big winner in a game of bingo.
