The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) and its regional chapters are dedicated to the study and enjoyment of topics relating to Jane Austen’s novels. The Pittsburgh region meets 4-6 times a year in various venues around the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. Some of these meetings include informal teas with group discussion. Some include a viewing and discussion of a movie adaptation of a Jane Austen novel.
Others are more formal luncheons, usually held at the Pittsburgh Athletic Association (PAA) in Oakland, near Pittsburgh, PA. These luncheons feature speakers who discuss Jane Austen, her life, books, and movies, as well as Regency England. Annual membership dues for the Pittsburgh chapter are $10 and membership in the Jane Austen Society of North America is required.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a literary society in search of scintillating conversation, must always be in want of new members! Please contact AllisonThompson@juno.com to get information on membership or on upcoming meetings, or click on “Events” on the navigation menu at the top of the screen. We look forward to meeting new Jane Austen fans – known informally as Janeites!
