The Purley Literary Society, affectionately known as 'Purley Lit,' started in 1901, and has being running continuously except for
the war years - and the recent pandemic.
The Society engages guest speakers to present talks on a variety of topics, usually illustrated.
Meetings are held fortnightly on Tuesdays at 8pm from October to March, and last about an hour, followed by questions and answers.
Our final session of the 2023 - 2024 season, on 19th March, will start with a brief AGM, at the earlier time of 7:30pm
It will be followed shortly after 8pm by the last talk: "Edward Lear, the Artist," by Mark Lewis.
