This is an ongoing podcast and a crowdfunding project focusing on the eternal Brontë vs Austen (apparent) dichotomy:
Bonnets At Dawn (and Instagram)
Lauren Burke and Hannah K Chapman
Chicago, United States

Austen vs. Brontë is a literary thunderdome! Listen each week as Lauren and Hannah compare and contrast the lives, work and fandoms of the Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters.
Both Brontë and Austen teams want that this project go beyond the podcast and be a book. The project can be funded on Unbound:
This unique biography will compare and contrast the lives and work of Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters via comics, essays and an accompanying podcast.
Each week, authors Lauren (Team Brontë) and Hannah (Team Austen) will present their research and debate topics such as Darcy vs. Heathcliff, Steventon vs. Haworth, and Northanger Abbey vs. Jane Eyre on their podcast. Brontë biographers, Austenesque authors, fashion researchers, artists and actors will be interviewed to weigh in on this very important debate.
Each chapter of the book will be comprised of Team Austen and Team Bronte essays drawn from the discussion on the podcast and feature comics from some of our favorite artists. Here are a few things you can expect -
Popular animators - the Satrun sisters, will illustrate Victorian and Regency fashions in paper doll style.
Cheesecake artist extraordinaire, Monica Ras, is tackling our chapter on Victorian men versus Regency heroes, and drawing our beloved Brontë and Austen men as hunks.
Storyboard specialist J.M. Tolman will craft an illustrated quiz to test your knowledge.
Gothic-inspired comic artist, Laura Neubert will illustrate our trip to the Brontë Parsonage.
And many more artists will be announced!
