HFS Meetings Were Great!
I was unable to attend William “Bert” Wilson’s opening Joseph S. Schick Lecture last night at Indiana State University (due to an Indiana University award’s banquet), but I completely enjoyed today’s Hoosier Folklore Society Meetings. The papers were diverse and very interesting and the public library in Nashville, Indiana was a wonderful venue. My lunch companions and I even had some pretty good barbeque just a block from the library on Nashville’s famous main drag. Professor Wilson gave a moving talk on the significance of family stories, the other presentations were all first rate, and there was a great reception at the Traditional Arts Indiana gallery (also just a block or so from the library).
Congratulations to everyone who made this great event a big success!
