The 2010 Western Literature Conference in Prescott, Arizona, opened with the traditional reception and with readings from the most recent entry in The Best of the West: New Storis form the Wide Side of the Missouri series. Editor D. Seth Horton introduced the three readers Dagoberto Gilb, Ron Carlson, and Aurelie Sheehan.
Of course, the conference really begins with the warm greeting at the registration table (and a plate of cookies for arriving attendees never hurts).
More to follow. And, remember, if you’re exploring the area around Prescott when not at the conference hotel, stay on the trail and try to avoid snake bites.
