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 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.)
Regional Coordinators: To promote an upcoming special event, contact JASNA's Vice President for Regions, Susan Wampler, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 & Co. is offering a series of free webinars on the theme "Reading with Jane Austen" from November 2022 through February 2023. Top scholars, including Susan Allen Ford, Devoney Looser, and Christine Kenyon Jones, will discuss various aspects of the theme—from the books and authors Jane Austen read to how books were made in the Regency period.

Improvised Jane Austen
Improvised Jane Austen tells a tale, on the spot, in the style of the most beloved 19th century authoress. In each original story, you may be introduced to headstrong heroines, steadfast suitors, meddling mothers, charming cads, auspicious aunts, silly sisters, boisterous brothers, verbose vicars, fastidious fathers, and any number of Austenesque auteurs! The cast is entirely female, non-binary, and non-conforming identified folk. Empowering the performers to speak truths that easily transcend from Austen's era directly to our own.
Visit the Improvised Jane Austen website for more information.
