An Invitation to Write

Your attendance at the AGM, the AGM itself, and JASNA are all part of Jane Austen's Legacy. What is Jane Austen's legacy for you? All attendees of the Chicago AGM, "Austen's Legacy: Life, Love & Laughter," are invited to write their response (no more than 300 words).

The writing could cover any connection to Austen's legacy. Subjects, for example, could include: 

  • personal enjoyment, meaning, or inspiration from reading Austen and/or seeing the films, 

  • effect of Austen on your life, such as dealing with life's experiences or helping with stressful times, 

  • social aspects related to Austen, such as being in JASNA, attending AGMs, participating in regional groups or the personal effect of Austen book groups and discussions.

Please postal mail your responses to the Steering Committee at:

            Natalie Goldberg
            5641 S. Harper Avenue
            Chicago, IL 60637-1831

or via email to jasnagcr@sbcglobal.net

 Look for the display of responses near the Registration Desk at the AGM.
