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 a film, had a picnic, and enjoyed coffee shops, parks, and other locations throughout the DC metro area.

You'll want to stay tuned for 2014 events, and join us if you are free! All women are welcome. And by all we mean 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.

We have discussed 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 etc. Won't you join us for the new adventure of Desserts with Jane 2014? We'd love to meet you!

Come discover the relaxing atmosphere that is Desserts with Jane while also visiting new cozy locations throughout the metro area!

*** In addition we'll be traveling to Guernsey Island, UK in the summer of 2015- stay tuned!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
