JASNA Greater Sacramento: Meeting

(As we affectionately call ourselves.)

Formed in March of this year this fledgling branch of the Jane Austen Society of America has some delightful plans for the coming months and years. Sacramento Jane Austen fans will have opportunities to enjoy a Birthday Tea in December, readers' theaters and visiting speakers, and hopefully picnics, book clubs, more teas and a plethora of other things! I am privileged be a part of the founding committee, which is an experienced and quite diverse group of both women and a men. Our group's regional coordinator was the principal planner for the "How Austentatious" series at the Sacramento Library that I've posted about in the past.

Apart from introducing this group, I'm announcing our next meeting: this Saturday, June 25 at the Rancho Cordova Library, 10:00 in the morning (until 12:00). At this stage in the group's forming anyone is welcome to join us!

I'd like to mention that if anyone has any ideas for events that our regional group could put together or be involved in, please comment on this post! Or tell us on Facebook or Twitter. We'd love some ideas!
