Program of Events
Jane Austen Society of North America
Puget Sound Region






Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, scheduled events have changed to virtual programs.  This will continue as we follow the restrictions being recommended.  Of course, the health and well-being of our members is of utmost importance to JASNA Puget Sound, and we will not hold in-person meetings until it is safe to do so.  If a public event is scheduled as a gathering, please double-check this site a day or two before the event to be sure.


Note: Unless otherwise noted*, our meetings begin at 2 p.m. on the second Sunday of every other month: February, April, June, August, October and December.  That said, both the February and March programs are on different days and/or times, so please note them closely.

An Extra!

Our Program Committee has been amazing us with their deft handling of switching to virtual programming that gives us more than a switch of venues to programs first developed for in-person meetings. This is no exception.

Rudyard Kipling's The Janeites
