Lydia Maria Child Society at ALA 2017

The Westin Copley Place, Boston

May 25 – 28

Dear Members and Friends,

The ALA has posted the 2017 draft program on its conference website, so we thought you’d like to see the particulars about the three LMCS events currently in that program.  Please note that these events all take place on Saturday, May 27.

We’re working on an excursion to Medford to visit some Lydia Maria Child sites on Friday, May 26.  Once we’ve worked out the details, we’ll update you via this list-serv.  We’re on a roll!
