Reading his best-loved novel has made me even more excited for the Thornton Wilder Society event we're hosting at National Council of Teachers of English Annual Convention at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. HarperCollins will provide the opportunity for conference-goers to meet experts from the Thornton Wilder Society including Tappan Wilder (Thornton's nephew and literary executor), Jackson R. Bryer (Society president), and Lincoln Konkle (Society executive director). We're even giving away free copies of Our Town to the first 100 people in preparation of its 75th anniversary in 2013. If you'll be there on November 17, you can come to Booth 521 to meet the experts between 10am and 12pm, or come to the Premiere Ballroom to hear the experts' panel, Teaching Thornton Wilder to 21st Century Students, from 2:45pm to 4pm.
