The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) was founded 40 years ago, with an inaugural dinner on October 5, 1979. Since then, JASNA has become the largest literary society in the world devoted to Jane Austen. JASNA brings together thousands of members—Austen’s enthusiastic readers and professional scholars alike—to promote the study and appreciation of her works, life, and genius.
