Keynote SpeakersWe would like to announce our guest speakers for the Awards Banquet at the 2013 NSA Convention in Traverse City in June. We are very excited to feature Dr. Brian May, Paula Fleming and Denis Pellerin discussing their new book on Diableries at this year's convention. Their presentation will be open to all convention attendees on Saturday night.
We had hoped the London Stereoscopic Company would have their new book, "Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell" for sale at the Convention, but it has been delayed. The LSC will be taking orders for the book at their table in the Trade Fair to be shipped at a later date. The price for the book is $60 + shipping. The LSC will only be able to accept cash.
