South Florida gets its own chapter of the Jane Austen Society

Jane Yes. It's true. South Florida did not have its own chapter of the Jane Austen Society of North America.

Until now.

Check out Hannah Sampson's story on a dedicated group of Janeites who aim to rectify this terrible situation. The group will feature lectures on Austen and tea (what, you were thinking whiskey?) on Sunday at Nova Southeastern University's Alvin Sherman Library in Davie. They're planning Miami-Dade events, too.

The closest chapter, by the way, was in West Palm Beach, and no matter how much you want to discuss what a twit Fanny is in Mansfield Park, you're not gonna drive that far north if you live in Kendall.

This gorgeous illustration, by the way, comes courtesy of the talented Ana Lense Larrauri.
