    Patrick Stokes said something Sunday morning at the Montreal AGM about an upcoming event in Halifax. Do you know what he meant?

    • Hello Marti:

      Thanks for your visit to our blog. As former Chair of the English Jane Austen Society (JAS), Patrick was thinking of having their AGM in Halifax in 2017 to celebrate Persuasion. Nothing has been finalized yet.

      Any details will be on our blog, as the time draws closer.
      Anne Thompson, RC

    Do you mean the English AGM? Would we be able to attend?

    This is grand news – as a former resident and frequent visitor to Hampshire I am a JAS-UK member as well as a JASNA member. I’ve never been able to visit Halifax (almost harder to fly to than the UK when one lives in Vancouver). This would be a must trip to make if JAS and yourselves every pull it off. Great work you are doing in Halifax, to be sure.
