Anna Quindlen, Bingley's Teas, Cornel West, Daniel James Cole, Jane Austen, JASNA AGM 2012, JASNA Nova Scotia, Lady Susan, literature, Novel-T Jane Austen baseball shirt, Sandy Lerner, The Morgan Library and Museum, Wicked Wickham tea
A record number of JASNA Nova Scotia members attended the 2012 JASNA AGM in New York this year, and our group will meet on Sunday, October 21st at 12:30 pm at Anne’s house in Armdale for lunch and conversations about the AGM with members who attended and members who didn’t. (And for a short business meeting.)
Come and talk about the plenary lectures you heard (Anna Quindlen! Cornel West! Sandy Lerner! Daniel James Cole!); the breakout and special interest sessions you attended; the reading of Lady Susan you heard at The Morgan; the books and other souvenirs you bought at the Emporium (did anyone get a Novel-T Jane Austen baseball shirt? or a package of Wicked Wickham tea?); the food you ate (including the fabulous dinner several of us shared at an Italian restaurant on Friday evening); the Punch Royal you drank at the banquet; the Regency costumes you saw, or wore; and the Regency Ball — at which you danced, I hope, for “There is nothing like dancing after all.”
For more information, please email Anne or me, or leave a comment below.

Hi, Sarah. I’m the white-haired lady from Prairie Village, KS who saw you and your adorable daughter at dinner in the hotel on Thursday night. I love your blog and thought your large group from Nova Scotia contributed so much to the AGM. I know that Cornel West spoke without notes, and I’m just hoping some kind of manuscript turns up in Persuasions, but I would be interested what the comments were at your meeting on Oct. 21. Your session on Edith Wharton was especially meaningful to me. Thanks, MJP
Hi Mary Jo,
Thanks so much for writing. It was great to meet you at the AGM, and I’m glad you enjoyed my session. I wish I had taken more notes when Cornel West was speaking — I don’t know if there will be anything in Persuasions. Do let me know if you ever happen to be visiting Nova Scotia, as our Region would be happy to welcome you.
