Pacific Northwest Super-Regional Gathering

Saturday, February 6, 2021, from 11-5 Pacific Time, on Zoom

Join the seven JASNA regions in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and British Columbia for a day of talks, games, and socializing!

Keynote Address:

JASNA President Liz Philosophos Cooper

Jane Austen: Working Woman

“I must keep to my own style & go on in my own Way.”

Jane Austen was a working woman and determined professional writer. This illustrated talk will explore Austen’s involvement in the business of publishing novels during a time of rampant financial instability. The Austen family were active participants in both war and finance, and these two sectors intertwined in the story of Jane Austen’s writing and publishing.
