Bryn Mawr Classical Review 04.04.01: Conference Announcement


Subject: The Ancient Book Title: Conference at U. of Minnesota

Dear fans of the ancient book:

I am going to attempt to paste the brochure and registration form copy into this e-mail note. (Those of you who sent me snail mail addresses will receive print copies in a few weeks). Alas, I will not be able to use my e-mail for the next two weeks (until August 17) but if you would like further information, or if this arrives horribly garbled, call 612-625-3422 (my voice mail) or 612-625-6358 (conference services, who can mail you out a brochure or answer registration questions). The exact schedule of talks is still not set; there will be another group mailing after August 17. I hope you will be able to join us!
