The long awaited movie finally comes out August 16th in LA/NY. Harkins has a release date for Aug 23rd and I hope it will be nationwide. I think tea & crumpets before the movie will be a great way to celebrate the occasion.
When I had Shannon Hale sign my book I told her how I had by chance come across the book and she wrote in my book:
She was right the universe pulled me right into this book and I enjoyed everything about it.
I reread Austenland in preparation for the movie release and loved it all over again.

Here is author Shannon Hale's website: http://www.squeetus.com/stage/main.html
I can't take credit for this picture. It's from Shannon's website but I was at this event so we can say this is my mental picture I took. And I can say, I was there when these two great authors came together and the idea of turning this book into a movie was born. Shannon is the author and Stephenie's film company Fickle Fish produced the movie. This movie will be true girl power. So excited!!
