Inaugural Conference

of the

James Purdy Society

 

 

On October 25, 2003, the first conference devoted to James Purdy's work was held at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.  Hosted by Prof. Joseph Skerrett, the conference featured nine papers on a variety of aspects of Purdy's novels, as well as his work in other genres.  The James Purdy Society is a product of that initial conference, and a second conference is being planned.
