Welcome to JASNA

The Jane Austen Society of North America is dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of Jane Austen and her writing.  JASNA is a nonprofit organization staffed by volunteers, with over 4,500 members and more than 70 regional groups in the United States and Canada.  Its members, who are of all ages and from diverse walks of life, share an enjoyment of Austen’s fiction and the company of like-minded readers.

Students, teachers, members, and visitors are invited to use the resources of this site to learn more about Jane Austen.  The Publications section offers dozens of articles and book reviews on her writing, life, and times, all of which can be searched online.

Membership in JASNA is open to everyone who shares an interest in Jane Austen.  We welcome your participation in JASNA’s activities, conferences, and regional groups.  Questions about JASNA? Please contact us.
