The Angela Thirkell Society of North America will meet in Kansas City, Missouri on August 19-21, 2016. The conference hotel will be the very grand Intercontinental Kansas City at the Plaza, 401 Ward Parkway, Kansas City, MO 54112 (816-756-1500). and the room rate will be a very low $109 nightly (with the conference rate good for three days before and/or after the conference). Some attendees like to arrive Thursday evening, when they gather for an informal dinner, and others arrive Friday in time for the afternoon outing (this time it is to the world famous Nelson Atkins Museum). The conference actually begins with Friday evening's dinner and speeches, and will run through until Sunday noon, with papers most of Saturday, the costume banquet Saturday night, and a meeting and Jeopardy-style competition on Sunday morning. The registration fee of $129 will cover the outing and meetings, Friday and Saturday night dinners, Saturday tea, and Saturday and Sunday morning breakfasts. Non-members as well as members are welcome. Registration checks made out to the Angela Thirkell Society can be sent to treasurer Lynne Crowley, P. O. Box 203, Larchmont, NY 10538.
