Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of England's most renowned and beloved authors. To discuss the works of this celebrated novelist, the Jane Austen Society of North America-Central Missouri Region hosted a local conference. In conjunction with the conference, the Museum featured objects from its permanent collection to complement Austen's literary works. Among those items were lacquer and tortoiseshell boxes, miniatures of porcelain and ivory, and two books on loan from Special Collections, University of Missouri-Columbia Libraries.
