Barbara Pym - A Sion College Zoom seminar with Paula Byrne

Her friend Philip Larkin called her “the era’s own Jane Austen”. But who was Barbara Pym and why is this English writer – one of the great chroniclers of the human heart – not more widely known?

Written with the wit and shrewd observations to match its subject, Paula Byrne’s new biography The Adventures of Miss Barbara Pym (William Collins) is the first to make full and unexpurgated use of Pym’s archive and sheds dramatic new light on both Pym the woman and the writer.

Applicants to this Sion College seminar are asked on the application form to confirm their postal address. Attendees will be sent a copy of Paula’s book, (RRP £25), as well as a wine package during the week before the event.
