The JASNA renewal letters have been recently sent out, and there is an option to include a donation to the Chawton House Museum. All donations received from August 1 through December 16 will go toward the campaign to raise funds needed to purchase a gold and turquoise ring that once belonged to Jane Austen.
The 2013 AGM's theme celebrates 200 years of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice . . . Timeless. The event will take place in Minneapolis, September 27-29, 2013. For more info, check out the AGM website here at http://www.jasna.org/agms/minneapolis/index.html.
