We're going to have an organizational meeting for the George Lippard Society on Tuesday Sept 14 at the Library Company of Philadelphia from 5:30-7:00 PM. At the meeting we'll discuss the purpose of the society, goals, mission, by-laws, officers, membership dues, etc. Anyone interested is invited to attend.
So if you are in the Phila area (or can make it here for the day) and are interested in being involved at the inception of this unique literary organization, please let me know (I'll need a head count).
And did you know the Library Co has their Philadelphia Gothic exhibition online (including podcasts)? You can check it out here.
I would also like to have an event, maybe a mini-conference, in the Spring. Possibly March or maybe in April (for Lippard's birthday) with a visit to his gravesite. So, we'll also be starting a committee to plan that event, as well.
If you'd like to come to the organizational meeting on Sept 14, drop me an email. If you'd like to be involved but cannot make it to the meeting, let me know and I'll keep you involved by email.
After the Sept 14 meeting, I'll be able to give everyone specific information about membership, etc.
Hope to see you there.
