The UPRLC is inviting select vendors to attend the UPRLC Annual
Meeting. Vendor exhibits will be open from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm on
Wednesday, September 26, 2018. The Annual Meeting generally has an
attendance of 60 Library Board members and personnel from multi-type
libraries located in Michigan’s Upper and Northern Lower Peninsulas,
and it would be a good opportunity to you to tell them about your book
and make some connections with library staff.  I’ve attached an
information form for your review.  Please let me know if you have any
questions.

Dear UPPAA Member,

On September 15, 2018, from noon to 2:00pm the second annual UPPAA Picnic will be taking place at the Island Pavilion at Presque Isle in Marquette, MI.

Bring the whole family out to enjoy a potluck lunch as well networking and socializing time with fellow writers.

I will be sending a Sign-up Genius form out about two weeks prior to the picnic to sign-up for what dish you are bringing and note how many people will be attending. The pavilion does have working outlets for crockpots and other hot dishes.

Any questions please let me know and I hope to see you there.
