We are a group of women readers who enjoy meeting to discuss our latest discoveries in Jane Austen's books and life. Our meeting format is flexible and fluid. We have read through all of Jane Austen's novels, strayed into Austen's contemporaries, watched Austen film adaptations, had a picnic, and enjoyed coffee shops, parks, and other locations throughout the DC metro area.

All women are welcome, both those well-studied in Austen as well as those new to the idea of reading books by a young English spinster written more than 200 years ago.

Possible future events include attending Austen-style balls, traveling to Jane Austen conferences, reading different literature loosely related to Austen, and also perhaps simply reading through Austen's works again and again.

Come discover the relaxing atmosphere that is Desserts with Jane while also visiting new cozy locations throughout the metro area! We'd love to meet you!
