Join JASNA Eastern PA, along with our co-sponsor, The Free Library of Philadelphia, for a multi-day Jane Austen event focused on the central theme of Jane Austen in the Modern Age.
The 2021 Jane Austen Days in Philadelphia explores and celebrates Austen’s significant and enduring influence on numerous contemporary disciplines and societal issues. Our critically acclaimed and esteemed speakers will focus on Austen’s impact in the modern age by exploring a myriad of timely topics ranging from racism, fanfiction, video games, and costume design. Each talk will include an interactive Q&A session with the speakers, and each day will include a special giveaway (or maybe even two).
The response we received from our 2020 online Teatime events has been amazing. We are very happy that so many of our fellow Janites enjoyed them! We also know that many people are still dealing with personal and financial hardships related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given this, I am pleased to announce that both days of our Jane Austen Days in Philadelphia will be FREE and they are open to anyone interested in Jane Austen! We want to make this our largest online event ever, so please forward this to anyone interested in Jane Austen.
