LIVE FROM MANKATO — As we work behind the scenes to provide you with an amazing 2012 LIWLRA conference, we have run into a few questions we think need to be addressed right up front. We’ll also add these to our FAQ about LauraPalooza.
First, the next LauraPalooza will not be held until 2015. That gives us more time and flexibility in scheduling the next conference, as well as helps set us up to celebrate Laura’s 150th birthday in 2017. Final dates will be announced at LauraPalooza 2012.
Second, we do have a limited refund policy. If you cancel your registration for 2012 before our registration deadline of May 31, you will receive a full refund. However, after that date, we’re unable to offer refunds because we must pay for you whether you’re there or not. Your best option at that point is to find someone to go in your place.
Third, we are planning a special LIWLRA member meeting at LauraPalooza just prior to Alison Arngrim’s Friday performance. LIWLRA members will want to stop by the LIWLRA booth to get your membership sticker, which will allow you admittance to that event.
Fourth, advertising space in the program is available. If you have a business or other entity you’d like to advertise to a select crowd of Laura fans, academics, scholars and historians, contact me or Laura Welser for a rate sheet.
