|Holmes, Doyle, & Friends Five, in 2018|
Fresh from the fantastic BSI & Friends Weekend in New York, I’m excitedly looking forward to the next big Sherlockian homecoming event Holmes, Doyle, & Friends Six, to be held in Dayton on March 29 & 30, 2019.
Evaluations from last year included the comments:
“Loved all the presenters.”
“Highly diverse. Each very well done in its own way.”
“Uniformly good quality.”
“A good mix of topics and formats.”
“All very good. Great variety of interesting topics.”
“You always have great presenters.”
“Very well produced.”
“Please be sure to promote this; more people need to know how wonderful this is.”
Sponsored by the Agra Treasurers, the “Dayton Symposium” (as it and its predecessor conferences have been familiarly known for almost 40 years) will again have a spectacular lineup of presentations. The 2019 speakers, in alphabetical order, are:
Susan Bailey, winner of the 2018 Morley-Montgomery Award for the best article in the Baker Street Journal;
Shannon Neihart Carlisle, BSI, Beacon Award winner and director of the Junior Sherlock Society for young sleuths;
Robert S. Katz, BSI, retired pathologist and co-editor of four books for the Baker Street Irregulars, including Nerve and Knowledge: Doctors, Medicine and the Sherlockian Canon;
Ann Margaret Lewis, ASH, author of Murder in the Vatican: The Church Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes and The Watson Chronicles;
Jeffrey Marks, biographer of Anthony Boucher, who (among many other Sherlockian distinctions) co-authored many of the radio plays starring Rathbone and Bruce;
Scott Monty, BSI, the inimitable co-host of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere, the first podcast devoted to Sherlock Holmes;
Regina Stinson, BSI, creator of amazing Sherlockian crafts and founder of the Ribston-Pippins scion society; and
Vincent W. Wright, engaging speaker, Sherlockian chronologist, and curator of the “Historical Sherlock” Facebook page.
