JASNA AGM wrap-up


Something we forgot to pass on in our AGM reports: there was a marriage proposal during the ball! And the gentleman started out with, “I can wait no longer in silence…” and continued with a somewhat adapted version of Captain Wentworth’s letter to Anne Elliot. After the first line Julie T. came up and grabbed my arm–after the second line I said, “I’m going to cry!” And I did. It was awesome. 🙂 (And she said yes, of course!)

Some other bloggers have posted their thoughts on the AGM as well. Sarah S.G. Frantz posted about the standing-room-only session she moderated about romance fiction in the wake of Jane Austen, featuring several romance writers (and readers).

We also met Janeite Deb from the Jane Austen in Vermont blog, who has posted her experience at the AGM as well: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.
