JASNA Central California Virtual Gatherings for 2021:

Our open discussions occur on Zoom and are also livestreamed to our Facebook Live channel. We are testing the waters of outdoor, in-person events this summer, but we’re taking it slow.

Anyone may participate in our JASNA Cen Cal open discussions. This is an opportunity to discuss ideas, pose questions, and dig into Austen’s texts. Please join in!

Saturday, May 22 at 2 p.m. via Zoom: Open discussion on Lady Susan and the Whit Stillman film “Love & Friendship”.

Join in as we learn from each other by discussing Austen’s novella first and then tie in how it compares to the film. Familiarity with the film will help this discussion but is not required. Register for the May meeting here.


Reconnect with your local JASNA region with Austen chit-chat and general merriment.

June 12, 2021 * 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. * Woodward Park Next to the Lake [Map of Park]

For complete information and public health guidelines for this event, please read the blog post!

Sunday, August 8 at 2 p.m. via Zoom: Open discussion on Mansfield Park.

Our discussions of Mansfield Park have been notoriously complex, if for no other reason than folks disagreeing about Fanny Price! Register for the August meeting here.
