Northern California hosts a large, active and enthusiastic group of the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA).
We meet in the San Francisco area quarterly in March, June, September and December.
At each meeting we strive to present a mix of information -- from pure discussion of the novels, to details of Jane Austen's life, to the historical and cultural context in which she lived and worked.
Anyone with an interest in Jane Austen's works, life, and times is welcome to attend. Our members come from all walks of life.
Whether you're a doctoral candidate working on a thesis on Jane's Chawton years or you just can't stop watching all 12 hours of the BBC production of Pride and Prejudice, you'll meet kindred spirits here.
To become a member of our Northern California group, you must also join at the national level.
Member benefits include invitations to meetings and events, the opportunity to meet and network with fellow Janeites, and access to our audio-visual circulating libraries.
We would love to meet you, and hope to see you soon!
