About Us

Welcome to the Jane Austen Society of North America- Greater Louisville Region!

Who are we? We are fans of Jane Austen either through her books or many movie adaptations.  We formed in July of 2007 and haven’t looked back!  We now have approximately 180 members.  We meet monthly at Locust Grove and have wonderful programs (see Calendar of Events) and serve afternoon tea at the conclusion of each meeting.

Mark your calendars for July 10, 11, & 12, 2020- the 12th Annual Jane Austen Festival is returning to Locust Grove!

The Jane Austen Festival which takes place in July has been a terrific event to draw attention to our favorite author and our Region.  Each year the festival features an Austen author, a Regency style show, a Regency Emporium, Afternoon Tea, as well as workshops and a Grand Ball.

For Festival information inquiries, please email the Festival Chairs at janeaustenfestivalKY@gmail.com.

Give us a try!  Anyone interested in Jane Austen, her books, the movies, Regency life are welcome and encouraged to join.  To become a member of the Jane Austen Society of North America and the Greater Louisville Region, you must join the national organization (http://www.jasna.org/membership).
