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 6-7 times a year in various venues around the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area.  Some of these meetings include informal teas and luncheons with group discussion.  Some include a viewing and discussion of a movie adaptation of a Jane Austen novel.

Others are more formal luncheons or teas featuring speakers who discuss Jane Austen, her life, books, and movies, as well as Regency England. Membership in the Jane Austen Society of North America is strongly urged. Click here to go to the web site of the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA).

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