A keynote address by the indomitable Peter Josyph (with the understated title “How Cormac McCarthy Saved Civilization”) and a dinner celebrating the 20th anniversary of both All the Pretty Horses and the Cormac McCarthy Society highlight the Society’s just-released 20th Anniversary Conference Schedule. Four days of activities are planned, including presentations by over 40 scholars and independent researchers from around the world.
As we’ve said before, this event is shaping up to be a big deal (yes, that’s a term of art) in McCarthy studies, and it’s also going to be, to quote one of the conference organizers, “a hell of a good time.”
We would remind you, once again, that reservations at the Historic Boone Tavern may well be in short supply. If you’re planning to attend, get your registration fees paid and those hotel reservations made.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Berea, Kentucky, in March. Further details are available by following the links to the conference pages:
We’ve some new information about room sharing, as well.
The cost for a guestroom with two double beds is USD108.90 per night total including tax. Please firstname.lastname@example.org us if you want to find a roommate to share the expense of a room at the Boone Tavern with you. We will forward your email to anyone else who is also looking for a roommate, and vice-versa, so that you can make arrangements with them.
