At last we have our own dear child! It is with great pleasure that we can announce the arrival of our very own JASI newsletter, The Austen Gazette.
It is reserved for signed-up members only, but I can tell you that it includes a wonderful list of Austen related gift items that might come in handy this Christmas, compiled by Society Secretary, Sinead Ryan Coughlan. There is also a look at a very unique Austen website that is sure to improve your prose style.
Some of our enthused members wax lyrical about their varied Austen experiences this year, and we even get a sneak glimpse into Mr Collins's little black book.
If you are curious to find out more, you can join the Society today, and we will email your copy of the Austen Gazette straight away. Joining the JASI is simple; just click on the 'Membership' link on the right of the page.
Let me take this opportunity to thank all the contributors to our very first issue of the Austen Gazette; we really do appreciate you taking the time to send in pieces for publication, and a special thanks too to John Deering for supplying us with this very festive cover illustration. John was very eager to assure us that no Austen novels were harmed in the making of this newsletter. What a relief! Happy reading everyone!
