Having attended many conferences, events and meetings of several Sherlockian scions over the years, I speak from experience when I say that I can recommend any and all of these amazing experiences. Each one has something special to offer. Each one an experience of a lifetime!
It is a great way to meet like-minded people. Make new Sherlockian friends, reconnect with old friends and listen to some excellent speakers.
If you are travelling this summer and fall, please consider attending the following:
June 2: The San Francisco Silent Film Festival is presenting “Der Hund von Baskerville” (1929) with live accompaniment. The last silent Sherlock Holmes film.
June 4: Meeting of The Dogs in the Nighttime“, a Sherlockian society based in Anacortes, Washington. Guest speaker will be Dan Polvere BSI who will speak on the historic Speckled Band dinner recently celebrated in Boston. Historic, as it was the first time in 78 years that women were invited, and I am honoured that I was extended an invitation, and very pleased to have attended. (I personally thank Dan for helping me find the Tavern Club!)
June 8-9: “Scintillation of Scions” sponsored by Watson’s Tin Box in Baltimore, MD.
Aug. 10-12: “Holmes in the Heartland” sponsored by The Parallel Case of St. Louis.
Oct. 5-7: Gillette to Brett V (Sherlock Holmes on stage, screen and radio) sponsored by Wessex Press, to be held once again at Indiana University in Bloomington.
Nov. 3: 4th Annual International Sherlockian Summit in Mount Vernon, Washington. A gathering of the Pacific Northwest Coast societies. Organized by the Sound of the Baskervilles.
