Welcome to Getting Local With Jane, our weekly or so roundup of local events of interest to Jane Austen enthusiasts. If your local region doesn’t appear in this post, keep checking back, for one week you might find something close to home (or interesting enough to travel for!)

The spring season is approaching for JASNA. Be sure to check out your local region’s upcoming events. Some regions allow non-members to attend a meeting as a guest, after which you’ll be sure to join and become a full member!
