We're pleased to announce the launch of JASNA's new Jane Austen Book Box Program for schools and community groups in the U.S. and Canada! Our goal: to help teachers and reading program leaders introduce Austen to children in grades K-12 who are unfamiliar with her novels.
Qualified applicants will receive a Book Box containing their choice of age-appropriate books, which can be used in a program of their own design. We only require that you 1) allow the students to keep the books for their personal libraries and future reading enjoyment and 2) share a report on the outcome of your project with us.
We are now accepting applications for summer reading programs. Book Boxes will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified organizations while program funds last.
Visit the Book Box Program webpage for full details and application forms.
