Regional Groups

 

The Jane Austen Society of North America has 75 regional groups across the United States and Canada.

Each Region plans and hosts local meetings and events — from discussions of Austen's novels to speaker events, workshops, and celebrations of Jane Austen's birthday.  Some events may be open to the public as well. 

To participate in a JASNA Region, you must be a member of JASNA.  Once you become a member, you may join one or more of any of our regional groups.

  • For information on forming a new JASNA Region or to update contact information, email the VP for Regions, Liz Philosophos Cooper: liz.p.cooper@gmail.com.
  • There are no organized regional groups in Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Montana, or North Dakota.  If your state isn't listed in the directory, please check to see whether there is a nearby Region in a neighboring state(s).
