As we gear up for our next Reading Group discussion (see our 2012 Events page), here is a map of locations -- actual and fictional -- in the world of Persuasion,
The map comes from Where's Where in Jane Austen... and What Happens There (see right), by Patrick Wilson, and published by the Jane Austen Society of Australia (JASA). The book provides information about more than 400 locations in Austen's works; you can read more about the book here at the JASA site, http://www.jasa.net.au/regfair/ww.htm.
You can also read an e-text version of Persuasion online at Molland's, http://www.mollands.net/etexts/persuasion/index.html, which includes the beautiful watercolor illustrations and tinted line drawings by C. E. Brock from the 1909 edition (see right).
Welcome to the web site of the Oregon & SW Washington Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA). We are a friendly and active group dedicated to the appreciation of Jane Austen's life and works.
