Here's a reminder of the JASNA Syracuse Region Michaelmas meeting at Books & Memories, 2600 James St., Syracuse, 13206, on Saturday, September 25, at 2 pm. Our topic, as noted earlier, will be "This Is a Day Well Spent: Jane Austen's Juvenilia." After a brief introduction describing the circumstances under which the adolescent JA composed these wonderful comic sketches, we'll read aloud from "Frederic and Elfrida," "The History of England," "Love and Freindship" (yes, that's JA's own youthful spelling of "Freindship"), and "The Beautifull Cassandra."
A reminder also that parking on James St. in front of Books & Memories is limited and metered. In the past, we've recommended parking on Woodbine Ave. (the store is on the corner of James and Woodbine), and you can still do this. However, we've also discovered that the business just east of Books & Memories on James, MTS (Maine Technical Source), has closed and has ample off-street parking. Everyone else in the vicinity seems to be making use of the MTS parking lot, so we see no reason why we shouldn't do the same!
