Press Release Fun: The 2013 Kerlan Award Lecture & Luncheon

You always know when I’ve been to a conference.  That’s when the Press Releases start building up.  Today’s actually came out of running into Lisa von Drasek at BEA, who informed me that this killer presentation in Minnesota should be better known to one and all.  So if you are anywhere in or near the St. Paul area, you’ve got a heckuva cool program at your fingertips for free (barring lunch, of course).

“I think of myself as an enormously lucky person,” says Kate DiCamillo. “I get to tell stories for a living.”
Tickets are still available for the 2013 Kerlan Award Lecture & Luncheon with winner Kate DiCamillo at the Elmer L. Andersen Library.

The award presentation and speech by DiCamillo will begin at 10:00 a.m. in room 25 of Mondale Hall and is free and open to the public but requires advance registration by June 3rd. Registration is now open online to reserve a seat for the event.

The ceremony will be followed by a noon luncheon (cost: $30; $20 for Kerlan Friends) in Elmer L. Andersen Library. Registration for the luncheon is now available online, the deadline to register for the luncheon is June 3rd.
