Who's Who and Who's Where

an examination of the social status implied by Bath locations in Persuasion

Sunday, April 10, 2022 2pm PDT




This illustrated slide lecture by Julie Buck will trace the importance of Location, Location, Location, in the social structure in Bath. “The proper address” was acutely important to Sir Walter Elliott, and everyone in the novel is aware of what his lofty perch in Camden-Place connotes.  This lecture was a Breakout Talk in the 2018 AGM in Kansas City.

Sunday, April 10, 2022 at 2 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time

The Jane Austen Society of North America is a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers and dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of Jane Austen and her writing.  The Puget Sound Region of JASNA serves Western Washington from the Canadian border to Southern Washington.  We sometimes partner with other regions near us - Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho Region and the Oregon and SW Washington Region

Vision:  Because literature has the power to change and enrich our lives, we want to see more people reading the great authors, with special emphasis on Jane Austen.

Mission:  Our mission is to foster among the widest number of readers the study, appreciation, and understanding of Jane Austen’s works, her life, and her genius.

Diversity and Inclusion Statement:  To fulfill JASNA’s mission of fostering among the widest number of readers, JASNA strives to ensure that all people are welcome and feel valued in its meetings, events, and community spaces. JASNA is committed to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Society. There is no place in JASNA for discrimination or exclusion, including on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, ability, appearance, or education.

Due to the Covid 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.  Or email us at: regional98105@gmail.com


Note: Unless otherwise stated*, our meetings begin at 2 p.m. on the second Sunday of every other month: February, April, June, August, October and December.  That said, any programs not on our regular schedule will be fitted in wherever we can find an opportune time, so do, please, check regularly.  We are finding opportunities online that we can't pass up, and of course, that's wonderful!



Wondering about time zones, Daylight Saving Time adjustments, or the international date line?  Worry no more!  I just learned of this site - you can plug in dates, times, etc. and easily find out the date/time in another time zone.  So much easier than what I have been doing (which is scratching my head and asking my husband if he knows what time zone Timbuktu is in!  - It's Greenwich Mean Time,  and apparently, it's almost an hour past midnight tomorrow, 79° and I sure hope that's Fahrenheit!  They are also experiencing a dust storm, so I think I'll stay put.)
