About us

Wall paper is from Chawton Cottage

The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) and its regional chapters are dedicated to the appreciation of Jane Austen.  We study her writing, her life and the times and places in which she lived. 

The Pittsburgh region meets 6 or so times a year in various venues around the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.  Our events range 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. 

We are slowly getting back to in person events, and are still having some Zoom speaker events as well.

We would love to have you join us !
