Regular meetings are usually held the second Sunday of every other month, unless a special program dictates otherwise. The information below is subject to change.

Don’t forget to bring contributions to Hookham’s Circulating Library. Austen-related books are donated by members and circulated for $1. You can keep the book or, after reading, bring it back to circulate to others.

October Meeting

Belmar Library, 555 S. Allison Parkway, Lakewood — New Location!

Austen Potpourri —It would be great if everyone could bring some Austen information to share but it’s OK if you just come to hear what other people have. Some ideas are:

  • Have you read a book or article about Austen — or her world — you would like to share?
  • Something of interest or questions in the latest JASNA News
  • Thoughts/questions, things you’d like to discuss about any Austen novel
  • Any news you’ve heard about Austen movies, plays, etc.
  • Reports from the AGM
  • Ideas for meetings next year

Plus, details about the December Birthday Tea!
