|Dan Andriacco, Ann Margaret Lewis, and Bonnie MacBird at A Scintillation of Scions VII|
This will be the ninth edition, sponsored by Watson's Tin Box in Maryland, and the fifth I have attended. I posted on this blog about the program in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
But don't just read about it - register!
There are at least three reasons you should do so:
Great speakers: This year's line-up is as impressive as ever. At least three of the names will be familiar to long-time readers of this blog - Al Gregory, Bonnie MacBird, and Diane Gilbert Madsen. Although I consider them all friends, I'm looking forward to actually meeting Al and Diane.
Great friends: There's that word again. Whether you know anybody there or not (and I didn't in 2012), you will be surrounded by 99 new friends. And the next year they will be even better friends. Founder Jacquelynn Bost Morris thinks of Scintillation as a Sherlockian family reunion. And so it is.
Great conference: A conference the size of this one has a thousand moving parts, and yet they always seem to mesh together with the smooth efficiency of a Swiss watch. Jacquelynn and her crew of Tin Boxers make it look easy.
At this point, June 10 and 11 seems a long way off, but registration is limited to about 100. Sign up now to make sure you're among them.
