JANE AUSTEN SOCIETY NORTH AMERICA

Maine Chapte

We are a regional organization of admirers of Jane Austen and her writings, founded in 1977.  Our group meets four times a year, mostly in the Greater Portland or Brunswick area, to hear speakers, discuss Austen’s work and life, celebrate her birthday and enjoy the company of other Janeites.  We are proud of our summer “Boxhill picnic”.
Anyone who has chuckled at, appreciates or has been moved by Austen’s novels will find a cordial welcome at our meetings.   You can also visit us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/janeaustensocietyofnorthamericamaine.
JASNA-Maine is one of more than 70 regions which comprise the Jane Austen Society of North America.   Membership in our parent group confers regional membership.  One may attend the regional meetings as guests.  To learn more about JASNA or to join, see http://www.jasna.org/membership/index.html.
