Coming up fast, and just a pleasant train ride away:
The first Compleat Biographer Conference will be held on May 15, 2010 at the University of Massachusetts Boston. The conference, run by the Biographers International Organization (BIO), will focus on the practical aspects of the craft and art of biography. It also aims to create a setting in which biographers can meet and share experiences with other biographers.
Pulitzer Prize-winning biographers, best-selling authors, agents, archivists, librarians, and biographers of all sorts are making Boston their destination. Don’t miss this event!
Local biographer Charles Shields (Mockingbird) is one of the organizers of the conference and one of the founders of Biographers International Organization. This is a great time to get in on the beginning of this organization.
