The Mini Fair will be a time to mingle, look at show and tell, buy books (some of our AO authors will have their books to sell and sign), etc.

Overview is a session introducing a set of three years. There's an overview of 1-3, one of 4-6, one of 7-9, and one of 10-12. The Overview session will explain what's different from prior years and what to expect.

I just finished reading as many of the books that Miss Mason used in the programmes for music as I could find, so I'm going to be sharing some of the goodies that were in them. I just finished writing a book about it. Some of the ideas were so fascinating, and some I thought, of course! Why didn't we think of that before?

And I think I'll do a short intro on von Dittersdorf for this coming year. I know next to nothing about him, and I'm really curious! So I'll try to do a deep dive into his life and share what I find out.

I realize that there was no way to fit everything in, but I simply can't choose between "Atmosphere, Discipline, and Life" and "Reading"!!! (There's other sessions that are hard, but this is the most difficult choice.) I think we are all going to get to practice our narration skills at meals so that we can share what we've learned at the sessions.

I know! My oldest will be in year 4 next year so I will have to fight with myself over whether to do that or Brandy Vencel's for session. This may be the hardest decision I will have to make all month :O
Is the schedule out for which speaker is what day/time?

Yes, see above.
No, it isn't above. Whoops! See the conference page:

So, to clarify. Is the only chance to see the fair on Thursday?
Probably the fair will only be available on Thursday.
If, hypothetically speaking, one was to budget for the fair time, to may be buy every book signed by an author there, how much should one need to budget for? Or other goodies. We use an an envelope system so if the money was not planned we do not spend it, but if it is planned I can spend it.
