Welcome to the Jane Austen Society of North America, Vancouver Region

We are a community of Jane Austen enthusiasts who gather to celebrate her life, works and times. Our society is dedicated to promoting Austen’s literary legacy and fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of her works.

As a member of our society, you will have the opportunity to attend events, participate in activities and book clubs, and engage in lively discussions about Austen’s novels and life. Our community is welcoming, inclusive, and diverse, and we welcome anyone who shares our love for Austen.

Whether you are a lifelong fan or just discovering Austen’s works for the first time, we invite you to join us at our Saturday morning monthly meetings* in the Dunbar area of Vancouver. Every meeting is unique and includes activities such as formal talks by experts in their field, member panel discussions, readings, contemporary games and activities, and much more. Every meeting ends with a shared lunch where you have the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy the ones you have made. Throughout the year we also host various events where costumes are admired but not required, and the Jane Austen Society of North America holds an annual conference in a different city throughout North America with many activities and expert speakers.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our passion for all things Austen!
