D2's focal point has been directed at securing a variety of presenters for the state convention hosted in Lawrence Friday, Sept. 30th -Sunday, 0ct. 2nd, at The Holidome. The hotel changes its name to The Doubletree Inn in May. We are marketing to KAC to youth/families. One-fourth plus of the presentations will be directed specifically with them in mind.
D2 has moved youth awards from Friday evening to early Saturday afternoon. (this should help families across the state with travel time, attending presentations, and include additional KAC members in attendance for youth awards)
Plans are being made to host a reading, open to the public on Friday evening to garner additional interest in the convention and to help authors sell books. (we will still have a book room and silent auction)
A guesstimate of the convention cost - early bird registration: $110 by September 1st, and $125 for registration following. Walk-ins will be accepted but registration for meals will need to be made by September 26th.
Doubletree Inn, 200 McDonald Dr., Lawrence, KS 66044
Reservations for lodging should be made directly with the hotel.
Room rate is $99.00/night and reservations can be made by calling 785-841-7077. Mention Kansas Authors Club to secure this rate.
