logo: Jane Austen Society of Adelaide

The Jane Austen Society of Adelaide was co-founded in 1996 by Dr Madge Mitton and the late Claudia Quinn-Young. Our club members come from all walks of life, and range from those who find us after a lifelong fascination with Austen's work to those newly enthralled.

Discussions usually begin with a talk. Our guest speakers are specialists on topics mostly about Austen's era, including Music, Costume, Women and the Law, and Medicine. Members of our group also present interesting, well-researched talks on Austen's life, times or her novels. We never run out of ideas.

Club member Helen published A Private Performance: A Sequel to Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice'.

We welcome all who share our enthusiasm for Jane Austen's novels.
Come along for lively discussion, followed by afternoon tea.

Day: 3rd Saturday every month (2nd Saturday in December)
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Place: WEA
223 Angas Street, Adelaide, SA, Australia.
