Jane Austen Summer Program  2022

2022 Logo WEBlg.jpg

JASP is a four-day symposium exploring Jane Austen through lectures, workshops, small-group discussions and other activities. Each year we focus on one of Jane Austen’s works. Our 2022 theme is “Austen & Shakespeare.” We will be reading Mansfield Park as well as All's Well That Ends Well and King Lear.  Have questions? Read our FAQ or contact us.

This year, attendees can look forward to creative writing and sewing workshops, a Sunday tea, a Regency mystery night and more.
