The N.E. Wisconsin book group of JASNA will meet at Atlas Coffee Mill in Appleton. They will be discussing Sanditon, Jane Austen's last, unfinished novel, and the 1975 completion of it by "Jane Austen and Another Lady," which is also titled Sanditon. Since trading book recommendations is usually a part of these meetings, they are going to try something new: asking everyone to read an additional book of their own choice (Austen-related or not) and give a "book report" on it to the group.
