For those of you who will be at the LWI Conferece on Marco Island this summer, you should paln to arrive in time to attend the opening reception on Sunday, June 27th at 6:00 p.m. Several awards will be presented at that reception, including:
- the Golden Pen Award (to William C. Burton),
- the Courage Award (to Teresa Godwin Phelps),
- the Deborah Hecht Memorial Award (to Jeremy Francis), and
- the LWI and ALWD scholarship grants (to a variety of our colleagues).
In addition, LWI president Ruth Anne Robbins, will re-confer this year’s Blackwell Award on Steve Johansen so that those of you who were unable to attend the LWI-ALWD reception at AALS in January will be able to congratulate Steve on this honor. We anticipate a festive atmosphere in Marco Island as we celebrate all of our award-winning colleagues on the opening night of the LWI conference!
Hat tips to the LWI Awards Committee members (Leah Christensen, Kirsten Davis, Sonia Bychkov Green, Hether MacFarlane, Lou Sirico, Susan Thrower, and Chris Wren)
