In addition to excellent presentations by your colleagues throughout the state, we will be featuring several dynamic guest speakers, including:

Trent Miller, program coordinator & gallery director at Madison Public Library, will speak at the Wednesday luncheon on the innovative events he has brought to the public library.

Micheal Edmonds, author of "Out of the Northwoods: The Many Lives of Paul Bunyan", will share his discoveries about Paul Bunyan's origins among Wisconsin loggers in the 1880s.

We will also have several social events, including a Wild West-themed cocktail party on Wednesday night, and Wizard Quest on Thursday night.
