Jack London Society 13th Biennial Symposium, September 15-18, 2016, Napa Valley College, Napa Valley, California

The 13th Biennial Jack London Society Symposium will be held at Napa Valley College, September 15-17, 2016 in Napa Valley, California. The Jack London Society welcomes paper and panel submissions on any aspect of Jack London's life. Innovative formats such as roundtables or teaching presentations are encouraged, especially those that connect London with other writers of his time and place. Please email 250-300 word abstract proposals (noting any audio/visual requests) along with complete contact information to Kenneth K. Brandt at kbrandt@scad.edu. The new proposal deadline is June 30, 2016. To commemorate the centenary of Jack London’s death, participants will enjoy outstanding presentation venues at Napa Valley College, and have the opportunity to visit the Jack London State Historical Park for tours, picnicking, and a banquet. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday we will hold regular sessions including panel presentations, plenary lectures, and roundtable discussions. Attendees can also attend a performance of Cecelia Tichi’s play “The House That Jack Built.” The Society will host a wine and cheese reception in the heart of Napa Valley. Please join us!
