A Visit to Camp Austen

On Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. HST (4 p.m. PST, 7 p.m. EST) we will discuss Ted Scheinman’s Camp Austen: My Life as an Accidental Jane Austen Superfan via Zoom. Email JASNAHawaiiNei@gmail.com to receive the link. The book is available in ebook or paperback from Amazon  (used copies available) or Barnes and Noble. Here’s what they have to say: “In a haze of morning crumpets and restrictive tights, Scheinman delivers a hilarious and poignant survey of one of the most enduring and passionate literary coteries in history. Combining clandestine journalism with frank memoir, academic savvy with insider knowledge, Camp Austen is perhaps the most comprehensive study of Austen that can also be read in a single sitting. Brimming with stockings, culinary etiquette, and scandalous dance partners, this is summer camp like you’ve never seen it before.”
