A Wake for Jane

12:00 to 3:00 pm

Our summer program will continue our observance of the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s passing into immortality.
The event will include a lavish buffet lunch and presentations by our own members.
We are asking our members to submit to us a “eulogy” for Jane Austen. In preparing your remarks, here are some questions you might consider:
The Program Committee will select our favorite eulogies and those people will read their eulogies at our July 29 program. Please note that each presentation will be limited to approximately 8 minutes.
Please submit your proposed eulogy to:
Program Director, JASNA-GCR
The deadline (if you’ll pardon the expression!) for submissions is July 1.
$35 per person
