Looking Ahead to Books in 2010: An Update

Those in the DC area are invited to a Smithsonian panel March 6: Jane Austen: The Author, Her Legacy, And... Sea Monsters?  According to the Smithsonian:

In this evening’s moderated panel discussion, Austen scholar Tara Wallace joins authors Seth Grahame-Smith, New York Times best-selling author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies; Ben H. Winters, New York Times best selling author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters; and Regina Jeffers, author of Vampire Darcy’s Desire and Darcy’s Passions as they talk about Austen the author and why her works have endured and inspired through the years.  

The event will be moderated by Bethanne Patrick (@bookmaven on Twitter and The Book Maven on the Web).

Frankly, it sounds like a lot a fun — and a good way to find out more about upcoming releases I mentioned earlier this month.

Hope to see you there!
