I will be attending this year in KC and the Society is planning on having some RAH-related events at the convention (still in the planning stages) as well as travelling to Jefferson City to formally install the bust of RAH in its "Hall of Famous Missourians".

Will any of you be attending? Please be sure to say "hello" if you see me and be kind if I don't immediately make a connection to the NexusForum. ;)

I'll be there. I wonder if Keith Kato will attend -- I've always managed to have scheduling conflicts and only saw him briefly. The KC con is doing a party area very much like London did. Maybe this time I will look around. In London I was too busy being a tourist to do more than drop in and say hello.

I believe the entire Society board will be in attendance, Keith most definitely included. We will be doing a blood drive (I think it's scheduled for three days now) and will have a fan table and some sort of exhibit of Heinlein's things. We're also premiering the Heinlein bust that will be installed after the con at the MO statehouse. I don't know how any of these things will actually be scheduled yet! :)

Ask at the table about other activities, Tina (and any other readers of this board that will be in attendance).

Should be a fun time. Are you doing major volunteering for the con, Tina?

I see there are a couple of Heinlein papers in Midamericon's academic track. (I don't know whether they've published this schedule yet, but as a participant, I've been sent a draft.)

On Thursday, 18 August from 10 AM to 10:50, a two-paper session called "Heinlein: Investigating His Place in History" is currently scheduled.

"Heinlein and Campbell: The Collaboration" by Marie Guthrie

"Robert A. Heinlein Revisited" by Bradford Lyau

Sigh. Wish I could go.
