Welcome to Getting Local With Jane, our (usually) weekly feature in which we highlight upcoming local events of interest to Jane Austen fans. Even if your town doesn’t appear on the list, keep checking back–you never know when there will be an event in your town. And there certainly are a lot coming up!
