The Greater Chicago Region of the Jane Austen Society of North America is pleased and excited to invite all JASNA members to the 2021 AGM in the world-famous city of Chicago. You will experience an exciting lineup of plenary and breakout speakers and will have the opportunity to attend unique theater, music, and cultural events available only to AGM attendees. Plan to come early and stay late. Our kind of town will be your kind of town!

Each of Jane Austen’s novels features the arts in some form—from the domestic female accomplishments of playing an instrument, singing, and drawing as practiced by Emma Woodhouse, to the elaborate but private preparations for a performance of Lover’s Vows in Mansfield Park, to the public concert at the Assembly Rooms in Persuasion. We invite you to explore and experience this fascinating topic in the beautiful, exciting surroundings of the city of Chicago.
