Modernizing Jane for the Digital Age: "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" and "The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet"

The Emmy award-winning Web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and the companion book The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet reimagined the Pride and Prejudice story like never before, turning Lizzie and Darcy's romance into a 21st-century affair through video blogs, tweets, Facebook posts, and text messages. Kate Rorick, co-author of The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet and a writer for the popular Web series, will talk about both projects and the process of bringing the work of Jane Austen into the Internet age.
