Satellite Meeting Flier

The American Library Association has generously offered to host our meeting the morning of August 10th. Their headquarters are located at 50 East Huron (entrance at 40 East Huron Street) in Chicago, Illinois. They are close to the Allerton Hotel, theOmni Hotel, and the Holiday Inn Express Magnificent Mile. If these hotels are too expensive, I would recommend looking for hotels along the city’s red line subway. All current activities planned are easily accessibly via this train route.

There is no fee to attend this portion of the satellite meeting. To ensure we reserve a large enough room, please RSVP HERE. A list of our current presenters and topics is below. Final list and titles may be subject to change:
