Join the Dorothy L Sayers Society today
The Dorothy L Sayers Society was founded in 1976 to promote the study of the life, works and thoughts of this great scholar and writer, to encourage the performance of her plays and the publication of books by and about her, to preserve original material for posterity and to provide assistance for researchers. It acts as a forum and information centre, putting members in touch with other workers and sources of information, and providing for study purposes material not otherwise available.
It holds an annual seminar convention of which the proceedings are published, and commemorates the name of Dorothy L Sayers with plaques and notices as opportunity offers. We are privileged to count among our members a number of people who knew her; our former president Dr Barbara Reynolds, who sadly died in 2015, published a number of books about her, most recently a collection of her letters.
There is no entrance qualification beyond an appreciation of her works. The Society is registered as a charity and is run by voluntary effort. There is a small subscription to cover expenses, set at the annual general meeting in November. Members receive six bulletins per year with news and events and a catalogue of over 1,200 items held by the Society, can be sent to members on request.
