Our Spring 2019 meeting will be held March 8 and 9 in sunny San Diego, California, and is filled with all manner of things—great opportunities, exceptional speakers, and an archaeological adventure to rediscover a once-lost mural! Friday events will be held at the San Diego Central Library, and activities include the Maxine and David Schaefer Memorial Reading, a tour of the Library (including the Children’s Library and Rare Book Room), and their special Alice exhibit. On Saturday at San Diego State University‘s Scripps Cottage, activities include terrific speakers—fine scholarly talks, and others more focused on the popular culture (Edward Gorey! Kathleen Krull! Shel Silverstein! Star Wars! see Agenda for details), a short trip to view a once-lost Alice in Wonderland mural, and an exhibition of Edward Gorey’s Carroll materials. San Diego is a beautiful place—you may wish to stay a couple of extra days!
