Regional Gala Event! June 22nd

JASNA President Iris Lutz will present an illustrated talk on houses in Jane Austen's real and imagined worlds, shedding light on many of the homes and estates that figured in her life and novels. The visual tour will feature houses Austen lived in and visited while in Chawton, Bath, Winchester, and Kent, and Iris will share pictures and impressions from trips to Jane Austen Country. In addition, by pairing pictures of real houses with descriptions in the novels of cottages, manors, and estates, she will show what Austen may have had in mind when she created Barton Cottage, Longbourn, Mansfield Park, Pemberley, Sotherton, and other fictional houses.

Full details of the event can be found in this flyer.

About Our Region

The Puget Sound Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) is located in the Puget Sound region of Western Washington.

We are a very active region, and meet six times each year at various locations to hear a program, to engage in polite conversation and partake of afternoon tea. Naturally, the subject of the meetings is always related to the life, times and works of Jane Austen.
