Fans of Sherlock Holmes have a special treat in store this summer: The conference, “Sherlock Holmes Through Time and Place,” will take place Aug. 9-11 at the University of Minnesota’s Elmer L. Andersen Library, home to the world’s largest collection of Sherlock Holmes-related material.
The conference is sponsored by the Norwegian Explorers of Minnesota and the Friends of the Sherlock Holmes Collections at the University of Minnesota.
The conference will feature presentations by a stellar group of international Sherlockians, vendor tables, a silent auction of selected duplicate items from the collections, an exhibit of rare and unique materials from the collections, a dramatic performance by the Red-Throated League of the Norwegian Explorers, and the Annual Meeting of the Friends of the Sherlock Holmes Collections.
The registration fee of $165 per person includes all presentations, Saturday lunch and banquet dinner, refreshments at breaks, and conference keepsakes. Additional Saturday evening banquet dinners for guests are $40 per person.
