birthdayFor full participation in our Northern California Region, please join our nationwide parent organization, The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA). JASNA members receive subscriptions to both the national newsletter, JASNA News, as well as the Society’s well-respected, annual scholarly journal, Persuasions. National membership also entitles you to register for the Annual General Meeting (AGM), a delightful, three-day celebration of Jane’s writings, surroundings, life and times, hosted in a different city every year. In 2017, the AGM will be in Southern California! For more information on the national organization, please visit JASNA.

In 2018, JASNA will begin sharing a portion of its member dues with the regions. In return, the regions are asked to cease charging regional dues, as this led to confusion and great disappointment when people tried to register for the AGM. The regions are permitted to accept donations, which will help us continue through 2017. Most of our meetings are free and open to the public — the December gala is an exception, when we have food service and relax in Regency gentility.

To stay in touch with JASNA NorCal, please sign up for our electronic newsletter.
