The Middle Tennessee Chapter of JASNA recently celebrated the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice by holding its own "Netherfield Ball" in the grand salon of the Belmont Mansion on Friday evening, February 8. Approximately 40 college undergraduates enrolled in Austen-related courses taught by Belmont University professor, Doug Murray, and Vanderbilt professor, Andrea Hearn, danced traditional English country dances alongside a large contingent of local JASNA members.
