Ed. note: Should any members be in the NYC area March 21-23, here is an opportunity to meet JASNA colleagues from the East Coast. Plus, you’ll get to visit the locale of Sleepy Hollow.
JASNA NY METRO invites you to join us from Friday, March 21, to Sunday, March 23, 2014, for our weekend conference “At Home with Jane Austen: Daily Life in the World of Her Novels.”
We will meet at the Tarrytown House and Conference Center in Tarrytown, N.Y., just 25 miles from New York City. The weekend will include several guest speakers, an optional tour of Sunnyside (home of Washington Irving) and more. Register for the conference and your fee will cover the meetings, the hotel room, all the meals, and access to the fitness center. You do not need to make a separate reservation for the hotel. (The tour of Washington Irving’s house, Sunnyside, is not included in the conference fee, but you can sign up for it now.)
It promises to be a wonderful weekend. Space is limited to 60, so if you’d like to attend, don’t wait too long to register. (Please note, hotel policy prevents us from offering “day registration” to those who live nearby and wish to remain at home.)
For a detailed description and schedule click Tarrytown Conference. The last page is a registration form which you can print, fill out, and mail with a check payable to JASNA-NY. Or you can register online using the Paypal link marked “register with credit card” under the Tarrytown Conference link on jasnany.org. (Note that registration rates are $10 higher if you use Paypal.) If you want to share with a friend, each of you should register and pay separately and include the roommate’s name in your registration. If you don’t have a roommate but would like one, we’ll try to match you up.
It promises to be a memorable weekend. We hope to see you there! Please read the description and the refund policy, and if you have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
