For a third year, JASNA-Mississippi has teamed up with the Eudora Welty House and Visitors' Center and Crossroads Film Society to screen three films adapted or inspired by Austen's novels on the grounds of author Eudora Welty's house. This year the selected films are Persuasion (2008) on September 21st, Belle (2013) on October 5th, and Austenland (2013) on October 19th. In case of rain, films will be shown across the street at Belhaven University. Bring a picnic and a blanket and join us for some Friday night fun! This event is sponsored by a grant from the Mississippi Humanities Council.

THE JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB, MILLSAPS COLLEGE, SENSE & SENSIBILITY Instructors: Carolyn J. Brown and Susan Allen Ford; Monday, November 5; 6:00-8:00PM Cost: $40 Sense and Sensibility, Austen's first novel, published in 1811, is often overshadowed by the more widely read Pride and Prejudice, the more technically complex Emma, and the more lyrical Persuasion. Join us as we examine how Austen responded to her literary inheritance, satirized the values of her society, and, combining sense and sensibility, created characters her audiences have cared for, argued about, and reimagined for generations. Led by Susan Allen Ford and Carolyn Brown, the class will examine the characters, backgrounds, themes, and critical questions that create the tensions of Sense and Sensibility.
