Barbara Pym Reading Week is almost here
We are less than two weeks away from Barbara Pym Reading Week in honor of the centenary of Pym's birth. Every day from June 1st to the 8th, Amanda at Fig and Thistle and I will be posting Pym-related features on our blogs. We will also be linking to other bloggers around the world who will also post Pym-related items that week. There will be GIVEAWAYS and even a CONTEST that we will announce on opening day of the reading week.
Don't have a blog but love Barbara Pym?
No problem. You will have lots of fun things to look at that week and will be eligible for the giveaways and the contest. And all of us bloggers love getting comments. We look forward to hearing what you have to say.
Have a blog but don't know Barbara Pym?
No problem. This is your chance to be introduced to one of the 20th century's wittiest novelists. If you want to participate use one of the banners below on your blog to let people know you are taking part and let us know back on our blogs so we can link to your Pym-related post.
Don't have a blog AND don't know Barbara Pym?
No problem. Come back here or go to Fig and Thistle on June 1st and see what all the fuss is about. You can also go to your library and check out a Pym novel, go to Open Road Media to download an electronic version.
Blogger Heaven Ali is hosting a Virtual Tea Party on June 2nd in honor of Pym's 100th birthday.
Amanda (@nerdybookgirl) and I (@Thomasatmyporch) and many others will be tweeting about all things Pym using #PymReadingWeek and #BarbaraPym100. In fact the tweeting has already begun. (Some of us have already been called #PymPimps or #Pymps.)
