This is an open invitation to deepen your pleasure in and enrich your enjoyment of Jane Austen:
If you really love Jane Austen, consider joining JASNA (The Jane Austen Society of North America) and JASNA Massachusetts,
a local Region of JASNA. We welcome all who enjoy Jane Austen's works. Our JASNA Massachusetts Region is one of the many
Regions of the national organization of JASNA. We have many Austen scholars among our membership as well as those who simply
enjoy reading Austen and sharing their pleasure with others.
We hold five events during our membership year: four regular meetings (September, November, March and May), plus a celebration
of Jane Austen's birthday in December. These events usually consist of a talk or lecture lasting about an hour, followed by discussion and refreshments.
Please note that JASNA national membership does not include membership in the Massachusetts Region. JASNA Massachusetts dues are collected annually (September to August) in lieu of contributions at the door. To renew or
start an annual membership, please return a check payable to JASNA-Mass for $15 (regular) or $7.50 (student) to Marianne Redmond,
198 Rock Island Road, Quincy, MA 02169.
All are welcome to pay their dues at the door. Those who are not members of JASNA Massachusetts can simply pay $5.00 for each lecture they attend.
We'd be very pleased to have you join us at our next meeting.
The steering committee is planning the 2013-2014 season. The schedule of speakers will be announced as soon as it has been finalized.

United States or Canada. The AGM attracts about six hundred participants, bringing together scholars
