Vintage Pym October 010

Greetings from the Barbara Pym Society!

I'm very happy to announce that the Pym web site has had a complete makeover -- check it out! There are some new links, the index to Green Leaves has been updated, and additional material will be added in coming weeks. Conference papers and back issues of GL will be posted, making the site of more interest to Pym scholars, and the new look should be more appealing to first-time visitors. (Note that the domain name www.barbara-pym.org stays the same, but links to specific pages on the old site will no longer work.)

Afternoon tea on Nov. 6: Remember, the fall tea in Boston is only a few weeks away. If you plan to attend, please reply by 31 October 2010 to dbmarois@gmail.com.

Call for Papers: We are soliciting proposals for talks at the 2011 North American Conference on 18-20 March in Cambridge, MA. Preference will be given to papers dealing with aspects of No Fond Return of Love, but other topics are welcome. Please send a 100-150 word proposal to barbarapymsociety@gmail.com by December 1.

Finally, I want to pass along the following message about an online Pym discussion in November:
SeniorLearn.org is a site of book discussions and Latin classes. We are planning to feature a discussion of Barbara Pym’s Excellent Women and Quartet in Autumn during the month of November. Most of our members are not familiar with Barbara Pym and we would really welcome your participation in this discussion.

You will find us at www.seniorlearn.org. On the right side of the home page, you will find a link to register your name and a password and then click the link for “Book Discussions.” Once on that page, Scroll down to see the “Two by Pym” discussion, referring to Excellent Women and Quartet in Autumn. You should see a “Reply” button that leads to a box to post your thoughts. Once posted, hit SAVE and you are on your way! Please join us!

Best wishes,

Tom Sopko
North American Organizer
