A Sion College Zoom seminar with Paula Byrne
Monday 10th May 2021: 7:00 for 7:30pm
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.

Sion College events are often over-subscribed and each place is generously subsidised. If you are offered a place but are unable to attend for any reason, please let the office know so that your place may be offered to another. In the event of failure to attend without notice after being reserved a place, the Court will require a refund of the subsidy. Application for a place at any Sion event constitutes acceptance of this proviso.
