Today marks the end of our February 2011 Book of the Month, Prom & Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg. We absolutely ADORE Elizabeth (and her book!) and working with her is always such a treat. Heck, why do you think we’ve now done TWO monthly features with her?! So we’re kind of sad to bid farewell to our month long Elizabeth-extravaganza. Still, we have fun looking back on all the best of our last month. Here are the highlights:
You’ve still got until midnight (PT) tonight to submit your stories about prom (or anti-prom) for a chance to win a SIGNED copy of Prom & Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg. Hurry — details here!
Jane Austen Galore!
Obviously, Prom & Prejudice is a modernized twist on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. So we took this opportunity to share some more love about Jane Austen, her other novels, and a few other adaptations/mash-ups/parodies worth noting:
- Jane Austen 101
- Ode to Mr. Darcy
- Other Works by Jane Austen: Part 1
- Other Works by Jane Austen: Part 2
- Jane Austen: Spoofs, Mash-Ups & Zombie Adaptations
- Jane Austen Fan Fiction
Elizabeth Eulberg also guest blogged about the staying power of Pride & Prejudice, and why it still resonates with audiences today.
Another Fantastic Interview with Elizabeth Eulberg:
Yeah, I know, we’ve already gushed about how much we love Elizabeth. But if you need more proof, just check out this three-part interview she did with us (this is a NEW interview, besides the one she did with us last year)

Prom & Prejudice: Beyond the Book
We love when we can have fun with a book even beyond the reading experience. That’s why we got creative with a quote smackdown (can you tell the difference between quotes from Prom & Prejudice versus Jane Austen’s original?), desktop wallpapers, a playlist and creating our own book trailer:
- Prom & Prejudice Desktop Wallpapers
- Prom & Prejudice vs. Pride & Prejudice: Quote Smackdown!
- Prom & Prejudice Playlist
It wouldn’t be Novel Novice if we didn’t help you incorporate fun books like this into your classroom. That’s why we put together an assortment of project & essay topics based on Prom & Prejudice. We also compiled some lesson plan resources for teachers. Elizabeth’s book is a great way to help get kids excited about reading Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, after all!
