Events

 

JASNA-Wisconsin has gone virtual! Check out our upcoming events below – registration or contact information is listed with each event. Please note that, for popular events, preference will be given to Wisconsin members.

 

We use Zoom for all of our virtual events, so if you are unfamiliar with that platform, here is a good video to familiarize yourself with it!

North Woods Book Club - November

Jane Austen's Birthday Luncheon

Date: Saturday, December 11, 2021
Location: Red Circle Inn, Nashotah, WI
To Join: More details to come

Would you like to ride a (hobby) horse into battle? Be a swash-buckling dueler? Rouse the troops to action with your bugle-playing? Shoot off cannon balls or Nerf pop guns? Fall over dead in battle? Ring bells to celebrate victory? How about sing God Save the King? Have we got deal for you!

We will reprise The Battle of Prague at the December Birthday Luncheon. We presented it at the Spring Luncheon in 2019 and a good time was had by all. Jane Austen had a copy of this sonata in her music books so we think her family enjoyed it as much as you will.

North Woods Book Club - January 2022

Date: TBD

Location: Zoom

To Join: Email Tracy Rysavy at northwoods@jasnawi.org

Our picks for January are Waverley by Sir Walter Scott and a Stephanie Barron mystery of your choice. A few members are planning to read her Christmas mystery, Jane and the Twelve Days of Christmas, and we've read books 1 and 2 for book club already, so the next one in order is Jane and the Wandering Eye.
