Plans for 2019

Come meet fellow Jane Austen fans at our Winter Happy Hour! 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday,
February 27, at Kirwans on the Wharf, 749 Wharf St. SW, in Washington.
To reserve your spot, or if you have questions, contact JASNA-DC.

Saturday, March 30, 2019, 2:00 pm matinĂ©e: Vanity Fair at the Shakespeare Theatre Company, Lansburgh Theatre. When you read Thackeray’s Vanity Fair, do you hear echoes of Fanny Price and Mary Crawford in Amelia Sedley and Becky Sharp? Join other JASNA members to discuss this question and the dramatic version of Vanity Fair adapted for the stage by the acclaimed actress and author, Kate Hamill. Hamill authored the delightful version of Sense and Sensibility that many of us saw before or during our 2016 AGM at the Folger Theatre. We have reserved thirty seats at a substantial discount ($42 instead of $86). Watch for future emails from us about how to join the list.

Saturday, April 27, 2019: Study Day! Culture and Customs in the Late Eighteenth and Early
Nineteenth Century. Join us when we gather experts in several areas to expand our knowledge of life in the era and life in the novels. The location and additional details will be announced by e-mail as soon as the arrangements are finalized.
