We are so glad you are visiting our website as “we have been wretched without you!” The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) and its regional chapters are dedicated to the appreciation of Jane Austen and all things Regency England! We celebrate and study her writing, her life and the times and places in which she lived.
The Pittsburgh region normally meets 6-8 times a year for events ranging from formal teas and luncheons with speakers to informal discussions of a moderated topic. We go to movie and play adaptations of her works, have dances, balls and Regency craft/sewing sessions. During this time of Covid-19, we are now meeting virtually via Zoom.
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a literary society in search of scintillating conversation, must always be in want of new members! Please peruse the other sections of our website to see more of our past events, and consider joining us at one of our upcoming events!
For up to the date discussions of members, as well as information shared by related groups and websites, please check out Our Facebook Feed section. This is updated almost daily.
