Make that the newly renovated Sturbridge Host Hotel! Too bad they ran out of money before they could finish the common space (i.e. the swimming pool near the lobby). Oh well, at least the program rooms, the ballroom, the guest rooms, and most importantly, the bathrooms have all had a makeover. The Exhibit Hall had a partial renovation, and while it's not great, it is better than it was. Too bad the whole place has a feel so rustic that it makes the SeaCrest Resort down the Cape feel state-of-the-art. Fortunately, we have a kick-butt line-up to make up for that.
Nancy Pearl. Tom Ashbrook. Stephen Abram. Michael Stephens. Jenny Levine. Jessa Crispin. Karen Calhoun. Gail Simone. A whole host of authors. That's just a sampling of that nationally renowned names that will be appearing at the conference this year. And it all starts in just ten hours.
