ANGELA THIRKELL SOCIETY IN THE UK
Founded in 1980 by Mrs. Diana McFarlan of Dublin, at the instigation of Margot Strickland, author of Angela Thirkell: Portrait of a Lady Novelist, and with the active cooperation of Lance Thirkell, youngest of Mrs. Thirkell’s three sons, the Society aims to honour the memory of Angela Thirkell as a writer and to make her works available to new generations. An annual Journal (free to members) is produced and contributions are encouraged. There is a thriving second-hand book scheme as well as a system by which members may borrow books which they might find too expensive or difficult to obtain, and regular regional and national meetings and outings take place. The Society has also published articles and short stories by and about Angela Thirkell, including letters written by her to her secretary, Margaret Bird, between 1950 and 1960, and a childhood memoir by her son Lance.
