This is the official web site of the international
literary society devoted to the English novelist
Barbara Pym (1913-1980).  The Barbara Pym
Society was founded in 1994 at St Hilda’s
College, Oxford University, where its Annual
General Meeting is held every summer.  In
addition, the Society holds a North American
conference at Harvard every spring, a spring
meeting in London, and a fall tea in the
Boston area.  The Society's newsletter, Green
Leaves, is published twice yearly.
