The Janeite Social Calendar

If you feel that “There is a monsterous deal of stupid quizzing, & common-place nonsense talked, but scarcely any wit”, then we encourage to attend any or all of these events on Jane’s social calendar for “It is such a happiness when good people get together — and they always do.”

From lectures, teas, dances, and Jane’s Birthday there is something to attend yourself in the realm of a Janeite.  Any do not fret should find yourself required to go alone because “from the whole she deduced this useful lesson, that to go previously engaged to a ball, does not necessarily increase either the dignity or enjoyment of a young lady.”

Memories are to be made and friends are to be had, “But remember that the pain of parting from friends will be felt by everybody at times, whatever be their education or state.

See you there!

A Travelogue Through Jane Austen’s England @ University City Public Library

This event is free and open to the public.


 

Presenter: Alison Roberts

Last year, to mark the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death, the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) sponsored a trip to England. In the company of fellow JASNA members, tour participants visited houses, towns, and cities that shaped Austen’s life and fiction, including Winchester, Steventon, Chawton (where Jane penned most of her novels), and Bath. In addition, members travelled to areas associated with Pride and Prejudice, such as Derbyshire, the Midlands, and the Peak District. Other destinations included Chatsworth House, Lyme Park (Pemberley in the 1995 BBC adaption of Pride and Prejudice, in which Mr. Darcy took his famous swim), and Lacock (the location of many film productions such as Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey, and the Harry Potter series). Also, Winchester Cathedral, where Austen is buried, hosted a 200th anniversary service commemorating her death. With Alison, explore the places that helped make Austen such a beloved novelist.

JASNA–St. Louis member Alison Roberts has been a Jane Austen enthusiast since she was a teenager. Her favorite book is Persuasion. That preference extends also to the 1995 movie adaption of the novel with Amanda Root and Ciáran Hinds.
