Hello :)

This is a gental reminder about a CFP for the SAMLA conference in Nov. 2010

I still have 2 slots open, please apply ;)

Greetings everyone,
and Happy year of Mark Twain

I had to write to tell all of you how honored and pleased I am that in 2009 I helped with the SAMLA committee.  At the end of the conference I was told that one of the committee members was leaving and that they would have a spot opening up, and would I be interested in filling that slot.  I will be filling that slot.
I also spoke to them about having a special session to commemorate Mark Twain’s anniversary of his birth.  Thus giving us 2 sessions at SAMLA in 2010.  One with Sharon McCoy with the 100 anniversary of his death, and mine, the 175 anniversary of his birth.  
Here is the CFP’s for my session.
2010 is an important year. It is the 175th anniversary of Mark Twain/Samuel Clemen’s birthday, on Nov 30th.  In this special session we will celebrate the many “beginnings” in Mark Twain life.  These beginnings could include; the start of his life, his inventions, his works that are the 1st of that type of publishing (for example, Connecticut Yankee is the 1st science fiction book in America.). And any other beginnings you might think of.
Please either e-mail me or postal mail me your paper, by May 31, 2010.
