New event added to program – Saturday lunch open to everyone.

The Margaret Fuller Society, the Catharine Maria Sedgwick Society, and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Society are sponsoring a lunch open to everyone on Saturday, October 24th, from 12:15-1:30 p.m. The informal agenda will include discussion of collaborative activities among our societies and others, past and future—bring your appetite and your ideas!

The societies are subsidizing the lunch, which will be $10. We are also pleased to offer a limited number of free lunches to graduate students.

Lunches will be boxed, and they consist of a tuna, turkey, or vegetarian sandwich; chips; cookie; fruit; soda or water.

If you would like to attend the lunch, please register for it on the registration site. If you have already registered for the conference, you will be sent an email shortly telling you how to add this item to your registration.

Interested in displaying your recently published book at the conference?

The Society for the Study of American Women Writerss has arranged with The Scholar’s Choice to manage the combined book exhibit for our annual meeting taking place October 21-24 in Philadelphia, PA. It will be possible for your recently-published books to be included in their display. Please refer to their guidelines below:

“Any members interested in having their book displayed at the upcoming SSAWW meeting should contact their publisher as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that the publishers pay a fee to display with The Scholar’s Choice and may not have the marketing budget necessary to honor all requests, particularly for older titles. Reservations from the publishers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so reserving early is highly recommended. Please note that The Scholar’s Choice displays on behalf of the publishers and ALL requests must come from them, not the author. The person who handles reservations at The Scholar’s Choice is Debby Pitts. Your publisher may reach her at or at 585-262-2048 x.108.”

Roommates Board for SSAWW Conference

I've just posted a "Roommates Wanted" board at the main site:

If you're looking for a roommate for the 2009 SSAWW Conference in Philadelphia, please send a message to with the subject line "roommate." I'll post the messages on that page.

If you find a roommate, please let me know so that I can remove your message from this board.

SSAWW can't guarantee that you'll find a roommate, but we can post those messages to help you do so.
