An annual commemorative Evensong for Elizabeth Bowen takes place every September in the church at Farahy, Co. Cork, Ireland, close to the site of Bowen’s Court, the writer’s ancestral home. Bowen is buried at Farahy, too. This year’s service takes place on Sunday September 22nd. The lecture is by Heather Bryant. It is uncertain if any of the committee can attend at the moment. This is not (yet) a Bowen Society event. However a passionate Bowen enthusiast from Japan is making the trip specially, and there may be some Bowen academics from Cork in attendance. Please email us, and we’ll post any more information we can share about times, getting to Farahy, etc.
