“It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”
― Jane Austen, Sense & Sensibility
The North Texas Region is part of a national organization, The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA). JASNA had its inaugural meeting in October 1979, and has grown to more than 5,000 members in 40 years. The Society's purpose remains the same as originally established: to foster the study, understanding, and appreciation of Jane Austen's works, life, and genius.
