Our Next Meeting Dates

Saturday, December 9th:
Jane Austen Gala: Jane’s Lasting Legacy
Seven Hills Conference Center, SFSU, San Francisco

We invite you to join JASNA NorCal for our annual Jane Austen Birthday Gala on Saturday, December 9, at Seven Hills Conference Center in San Francisco. This is our once-a-year indulgence in Godmersham-like luxury, a day of fellowship and inspiration with catered food, culminating in a birthday toast to Miss Jane Austen, whose works transcend the 200 years between our time and hers. 

Our featured guests are a panel of contemporary Austenesque writers on “Jane Austen As Inspiration for Readers Today.” As an added treat, silhouette artist and lacemaker Sylvia Fellows will regale us with a look at paper crafting in Jane Austen’s day.  We will also hear from the members who attended the recent AGM and see the prize-winning film by two of our own members. 

Online registration is not available at this time. You may download a copy of the flyer here with instructions for paying by check. Please email us to let us know you will be attending to ensure a proper food count.
