Sunday:

Leslie Dorrough Smith will be presiding over “Developing Your Inner Snark” on Sunday, 1:00 – 3:30 pm, somewhere in the Hilton Baltimore Lobby Bar. You’ll also recognize her as the one who is knitting between — if not all throughout — every session that she attends.

Vaia Touna will be passing out buttons at the Kitchen Bar in Thessaloniki, Greece, around 5:00 – 7:00 pm (EET). It’s first come, first serve, so don’t be late! And be sure to get a frappé while you’re there! (You get two buttons if you buy her one.)

Monday:

Monica Miller and Steven Ramey will be presenting at the American Academy of Religion Panel, “Discussing the ‘Nones’: What They Say about the Category of Religion and American Society” (A25-328), which is part of the Religion and Popular Culture Group in the AAR, on Monday 4:00 – 6:00 pm in Convention Center 322.

His paper is entitled “Why Do You Seek the Living Among the Dead? (Luke 24:5)”, and the panel is part of the Redescribing Early Christianity group in the SBL.

If none of these times or locations work, then there’s a really
good chance that you can find one of us wandering
around the book display or hanging out
at some of the hotel bars…

Consider yourself told.
