We will be reading The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James.


What if, hidden in an old attic chest, Jane Austen’s memoirs were discovered after hundreds of years? What if those pages revealed the existence of a secret romance? That’s the premise behind this “thoughtful, immensely touching” novel (Regency World Magazine), which gives us insight into Jane Austen’s mind and heart.

Madison Tea and Book Club

Date: Sunday, May 5, 2024 at 2 p.m. CT

Location: A member's home

To Join: Please email for more information.

Members at the last tea choose Miss Austen by Gill Hornby as the book for discussion at our May tea. This book focuses on Miss Cassandra Austen and her search for Jane's letters - and is relevant for this year as Miss Austen will be or is being adapted in a four-part series on PBS Masterpiece by the end of 2024.

North Woods Book Club

Date: Sunday, June 23, 2024 at 1:30 p.m. CT (note the slightly later time)

Location: Sammie's Pizza and Italian Restaurant, Green Bay

To Join: Please email for more information.

We'll be reading Stranded with Mr. Darcy by Mei Wei Lin and Die for Love by Elizabeth Peters. Please note that Die for Love is not a Regency- or Austen-related, but we had talked about it last time, and everyone's curiosity was piqued, so we decided to go rogue!

Since it's our first in-person meeting in a while, we thought we'd swap books again. Please feel free to bring any books you'd like to trade – Austen- or Regency-related or not – and we'll swap at this meeting.
