Steventon: The Cradle of Jane Austen's Genius.
The Austen-Steventon connection is lovingly described in this 12 page booklet illustrated by Dorothy Dent.

Kenning explains that "the church and village community adopted a ministry of welcome," and Kenning himself has led many visitors through the church. This booklet is based on the talks he has given over the years, and offers an inside view of the world that cradled Austen's genius. Kenning is JAS Vice-Chairman from 2015.
