JASNA Southwest has planned a special all-day meeting at the historic and beautiful Mission Inn Hotel and Spa in Riverside (a living museum and destination unto itself!) with the theme “Ms. Austen Goes to Washington: Jane Austen and Politics.”

Our speakers are Congressman Mark Takano (D-Riverside), who launched a Jane Austen reading group in Congress, and Austen scholar, Sheryl Craig, PhD, author of Jane Austen and the State of the
Nation. Takano will speak on the topic “A Janeite in Washington” while Craig will discuss “Tories, Whigs and Who’s Who in Jane Austen.”

Registration is open now!
