The Kay Boyle Society was formed on 27 May, 2006, at the annual American Literature Association conference in San Francisco. Its primary purpose is to foster Boyle scholarship by promoting the reading and discussion of her works. The Society is supported by an Executive Committee and an Advisory Board (see below).
ALA–As an American Literature Association affiliate, the KBS regularly sponsors one panel at the annual ALA conference which is held in May on Memorial Day weekend every year. The Call for Papers for the Kay Boyle Society Panel Sessions appears at this site on the Conferences list and in the Society’s Newsletter. The deadlines for proposals are usually in late December-early January. The Society’s Business Meeting is held at the annual ALA conference.
SSAWW–The Society is also an affiliate of the Society for the Study of American Women Authors.
