The Dorothy Parker Society was founded in 1999. The Mission of the Society:
1. To promote the work of Dorothy Parker;
2. To introduce new readers to the work of Dorothy Parker;
3. To expand the fan base of Dorothy Parker;
4. To have as much fun as possible;
5. To take part in service projects in the spirit of Dorothy Parker.
The Dorothy Parker Society has decided to be non-academic, although sharing the work of Parker scholars is encouraged.
There are no dues, membership fees or initiation ceremonies. Membership is open to the public.
The Dorothy Parker Society meets several times a year. There are talks, book parties, literary events, and more. These are announced in the e-newsletter.
