Latest Barbara Pym Newsletter

Barbara Pym Newsletter May 2011

Spring Garden Party: The Barbara Pym Society will be hosting a spring garden party at the home of Denise Marois-Wolf, 5 Blue Heron Way in Acton, Massachusetts, on Sunday, 26 June 2011 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., rain or shine. You may bring finger food to share or contribute $10 for beverages and paper goods, and you may bring guests if you wish. Come and enjoy light refreshments, summer beverages, a Pym trivia game, and the always-delightful company of fellow Pymians.

If you plan to attend, please reply using the form on our web site no later than Monday 20 June. If you will be driving to the party and can offer a ride to someone nearby or along the way, or if you would like to attend but need a lift, please let us know so we can arrange carpooling. We will send directions to everyone who is coming.

Spring newsletter: The spring issue of Green Leaves is in press and we hope to mail it before the end of May. The May 2009 issue will be added to the online archives at that time.

Membership renewals: A friendly reminder -- Barbara Pym Society memberships expire on 1 April every year. If you have not already done so, please renew now for 2011. You can renew online and pay using a credit or debit card, or fill out and print the form and mail it in with a check. (If you paid dues any time after 1 January, you are in good standing for this year. If you are unsure of your status, just send us an e-mail and we'll gladly check our records.)

Finally, one for, or actually from, the books: Demeter Fragrances has a scent called Paperback, which they describe on their web site as follows: "A dusty old copy of a Barbara Pym novel did it for us. This Demeter scent is sweet and just a touch musty, a lot like Pym's world come to think of it. Read her if you haven't. Her writing is wonderful, if slightly musty, English satire from the 60s and 70s."

Best wishes,
