"Writing to each other," as Lucy Steele says, "is the only comfort we have in such long separations." Now it's easier than ever for you to indulge in correspondence with JASNA Dayton by letter using our new postal address. Use it to send us your membership renewal or other postal mail. (No locks of hair please, lest some understanding be falsely assumed and universally talked of.)

Numerous updates to the Events and Reading Group pages; August Newsletter posted.

Many new items have been added to the Member Lending Library, including eight of the nine volumes of The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen! We've also made minor updates to the Library Wish List. Many items on the list are now hyperlinked to Amazon or the publisher's website.

Thanks for visiting!
