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.

Non-JASNA Events

The events listed below are a small selection of upcoming events that may be of interest to Janeites. These events are not organized by JASNA or its Regions. 


"Jane Austen's final novel is a Cinderella story about a fairy tale gone wrong . . . and Anne Elliot’s fight to earn an even happier ending."  This new musical adaptation (book by Harold Taw and music and lyrics by Chris Jeffries) will have its California premiere at Lamb's Players Theatre in Coronado from October 5 through November 18, 2018.  

For more details and tickets, visit the Lamb's Players Theatre website.
