2020 Barbara Pym Conference
Barbara Pym Society: Annual Conference
"Barbara Around the World"
Annual Conference celebrating the life and work of novelist Barbara Pym.
The Barbara Pym Society was founded 15 April 1994, following a literary weekend exploring the work of Barbara Pym, which was held at St. Hilda’s College, Oxford University, in 1993. Pym entered St. Hilda’s College as an undergraduate in 1931 and took her second-class honours B.A. in English Language and Literature in 1934. The Society is administered through the College, and holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM) there every September. In addition, the Barbara Pym Society holds a spring meeting in London, and the annual North American Conference is held in March in Cambridge, MA. Green Leaves, the Society’s newsletter, is published twice yearly.

Membership entitles you to receive Green Leaves twice yearly, attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting and Dinner at St Hilda’s College, and participate in all other events and activities organized by the Society.
