1. Jane Austen Spring Tea and Trivia Party Sunday, May 16, 2021 2-4 pm PT on Zoom

Please join the Jane Austen Society of North America-Eastern Washington & North Idaho Region for our Jane Austen Spring Tea & Trivia Party on Sunday, 16 May 2021 from 2:00-4:00pm PT on Zoom! We will be gathering online from the comfort of our own homes, to share tea, discuss our beloved Jane and her works, and join in a delightful game of Jane Austen trivia! Put on your best Regency dress & bonnet (or coat & breeches or stay in your comfy clothes-we won’t judge!) & bring out the china cups! There will be a GIVEAWAY for those who are in attendance, so don’t miss it! This event is free and open to all, so invite all of your Janeite friends for this fun event. We will open with a short regional business meeting for a treasurer’s report and a quick election. Details below! Then, on to the tea party & trivia!

WHERE: Via Zoom, from the comfort of our own homes

WHO: Free and open to the public, which means any Janeites who wish to join us! You do not have to be a regional member or a JASNA member to attend. This event is in English.

We will send the Zoom link and info out via email prior to the event. Registering at the link ensures that you will receive the information and can join at any point during the event. If you have any problem registering through the Google form, send us an email at jasnaewanid@gmail.com with your name; state, province or country of residence; and if you are a JASNA member, JASNA region.

BUSINESS: We will have a short region business meeting (10-15 minutes) with a treasurer’s report and a quick election for Regional Co-Coordinator (Michele Larrow) and Treasurer (Cassandra Bates). We will do a voice-vote since no one else wanted to run for either position.

TRIVIA: Our “Jane Austen Trivia: Who, What, and Where” will have 3 rounds of 10 questions each. Each round of 10 questions will have 1 question for each of the 6 novels, 1 from the Juvenilia, and 3 from the various movie and tv adaptations. We will work in small teams in break-out rooms (randomly-assigned by Zoom) for each round and then come back to review the answers and discuss. There will be plenty of time to socialize in the small teams. Since we are working in teams, all levels of Jane Austen knowledge are welcome. We want everyone to come and have fun. The trivia game was created just for our region by Michele Larrow, Regional Co-Coordinator, and Roseann Thompson, with all new questions.

GIVEAWAY: We are delighted to have a door prize just for those in attendance at this event! The prize is the beautiful Tea Cozy, pictured in the event photo, donated by Roseann Thompson. It is a hand-crafted tea cozy that has never been used and is made with Jane Austen-themed fabric. We will offer the tea cozy as a door prize to an attendee at the tea and you must be present at some point during the tea to enter the door prize drawing. U.S. mailing addresses only for the door prize (sorry!). Questions? Please send us an email to jasnaewanid@gmail.com
