Jackson Gillman in Vermont for NELA Conference

We are excited to have Jackson Gillman coming to the NELA Conference (cosponsored by VLA) in Burlington on Monday, October 3.  He will be presenting a program on Rudyard Kipling in Vermont.

Jackson wanted me to pass along that while in VT, he would be willing to present programs at Vermont libraries who are interested.  If he has more than one program he can also lower the travel costs to libraries.

His web site is: http://www.jacksongillman.com/ if you are interested in contacting him about the many programs in his repertoire.
