We are a non-profit educational organization promoting the works and study of Lawrence Durrell, a writer most active in the second half of the 20th century. To support an understanding of Durrell’s place in modernist and postmodernist traditions as well as in a canon of world literature, we sponsor meetings worldwide, publish a newsletter and journal, and provide a number of other resources. Learn more about who we are, what we do, and how to get involved on the Society page.
