The random drawing for the 2012 Jane Austen Calendar from the JASNA-Wisconsin group has just been done! – Drum Roll Please…and the Winners are…
Felicia, who commented on December 16th and wrote the following:
I would thank Miss Austen for bringing some wonderful people in my life. Because of her books I have met some great friends.
Cara Dragnev, who commented on December 16th as well:
Happy Birthday to Jane! And what a tribute to her to have this wonderful blog party! If I wrote Jane a letter, I would first of all THANK her. Thank her for all the joy she has brought to me and all who read her. I would love for her to see one of her books as a film and get a reaction. Can you imagine? Thank you for joining in this wonderful party!
Congratulations Felicia and Cara! I will email each of you privately, but if you see this, please send me your mailing address and contact information as soon as possible and I will get the calendar off to you right away. If I don’t hear from you by December 27th, I will draw another name. My email is jasnavermont [at] gmail [dot] com
If you are not one of the lucky winners, and are in desperate need of a Jane Austen calendar [and you should be…], you can order your own copy and more for all your friends at the JASNA-Wisconsin website here.
Thank you all for participating! – I have not answered any of your comments due to the Holiday Season Craziness, but thank each and every one of you for your own delightful letters to Jane Austen and the various gifts you would give her if you could! I encourage everyone with a spare minute in their day [and when might that be one asks?] to read the many comments and see how Austen has touched so many lives across generations and geography…
And a final thank you to JASNA-Vermont’s Michelle Singer for her lovely tribute letter to Jane that started all this !
Wishing you all a Festive and Happy Holiday!
Deb, at Jane Austen in Vermont
