Event Calendar

Borrowing the words of Miss Bates, "It is such a happiness when good people get together—and they always do." Check the JASNA and Non-JASNA event calendars below for opportunities to join others in celebrating Jane Austen.

JASNA Regional Events

JASNA Regions host creative special events that all members of the Society are invited to attend. In many cases, non-members who would like to know more about JASNA are also welcome. (For information on Regional book discussions and other regular meetings, visit a Region's website or contact the Regional Coordinator.)
