Welcome To The
Jane Austen Society of North America
The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) Vancouver Region welcomes you to our website.
Jane Austen’s major novels, lesser works and/or letters are featured at our Saturday morning meetings at St. Philip’s Anglican Church Fireside Room, 3737 West 27th Avenue, Vancouver. (No meetings are held in January, July, or August.)
Registration begins at 10:15 a.m. and the program gets underway at 10:30. The monthly meeting fee is $5 per person; first-time guests are free. An introductory package is available for newcomers with information on membership dues and benefits and all aspects of our Region as well as JASNA, our parent organization.
We often welcome guests to speak on a wide variety of topics based on Jane Austen’s life and times. Afterwards, our members share a pot luck luncheon and the pleasure of each other’s company. New friendships are the order of the day!
We are delighted that many have joined us after attending or hearing about the Jane Austen Society of North America conference which we hosted in October of 2007. We are delighted to say it was a huge success.

April 29th Meeting:
Jane Austen Day!
Our speakers will include David Lank who will talk about and display his mother Edith Lank’s wonderful collection of Jane Austen memorabilia, our own Megan Hanet who will read her prize-winning essay entitled “The Five-Factor Model of Personality Applied to Elinor and Marianne Dashwood”, and Adele Marsland, who is a musicology graduate student at UBC with familiarity and interest in music during the long eighteenth century, and also a big fan of Jane Austen. It promises to be an exciting and interesting program for this special day. Email treasurer.jasnavancouver@
