About

Do you like to discuss Jane Austen and her works endlessly?
Do you enjoy watching the TV and film adaptations of her works?
Do you dream about Darcy and Knightley? (Or Lizzy and Marianne?)
Or are you new to Austen and loving her?

If your answer is yes to any of these questions, this group is for you!

We meet mostly on the South Shore to get together for our Austen fix.  We also mix it up with other period authors and host picnics, movie viewings, afternoon teas, tours of historic houses, and holiday parties.

We hope that you will join us!

  1. I would like to RSVP to the Box Hill picnic. Our daughter and I will be attending and possibly one other person. My name is Shelley Wheeler-Carreiro, North Haven, CT and our daughter is Erin Carreiro, Brookline, MA. Please let me know what we should bring and where we are to meet. Thank you. Looking forward to it!

  2. Hello,
    I am also a fan of Jane Austen and read all her novels.
    I also collect Barbie dolls and have created some photo adaptations of Austen’s novels on my blog. Austen fans find it inspiring. I would be very glad if you could add me to your blog list with this link to my reproduction of “Pride and Prejudice”
    http://barbiefantasies.com/category/film/pride-and-prejudice-film/
    and/or of “Emma” (that I am publishing regularly on my site):

    Let me know if you are interested and if you want me to link back to you.

    I would be glad to read your answer.
    Cheers,
    Kate

  3. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was great. I don’t know who you are but definitely
    you’re going to a famous blogger if you are not already
    😉 Cheers!

  4. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  5. I live in Canon and would like to join your group. Could you please add me to your email list? Or tell me how to get involved? Thank you!
