Upcoming Meeting - 2016 May 21
The Quintessential Regency Picnic

On May 21 we will not only learn about what made a quintessential Regency picnic, we will actually have our own picnic. With this early summer, picnics will be plentiful.

Jane Austen's Manuscripts

If you haven't had the opportunity to see Jane Austen's manuscripts in the British Library, the BBC offers a short video describing her particular style. Or, watch as a fragment of her handwriting is revealed.

Regular Meetings

JasnaCalgary is a region of the Jane Austen Society of North America. We are all interested in everything Jane, from love of her novels to scholarly pursuits. Five times a year we meet to enjoy talks, workshops, teas, and galas. Attend a meeting and if you have fun, join in! Membership is $15.00 annually to cover our tea and cakes and other expenses.

Our meetings are 2:00 - 4:00, held at Sunalta Community Association, 1627 10 Ave SW, a location that is wheelchair accessible.
