February Meeting at Queen Anne Library
February 18 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Chris Redmond’s sequel anthology to last year’s About Sixty: Why Every Sherlock Holmes Story is the Best is called About Being a Sherlockian: 60 Essays Celebrating the Sherlock Holmes Community. It was published in November and is now available! The anthology explores different aspects of being a Sherlockian, such as conventions, collecting, scion societies, pastiche, and fanfiction, from 60 different perspectives, and features essays by SOBs VP Kashena Konecki, Sonia Fetherston, BSI, and Elinor Gray. The Pacific Northwest is also well-represented, as Canadian Bob Coghill, BSI and Oregonian Jerry Margolin, BSI, also have essays. PFL David hopes to open discussion so everyone can share their thoughts about being a Sherlockian”! As Margie Deck tells us, “From discussions online and at the Jollification, I know Kashena, Sonia and Bob will be at the February meeting; Jerry and Elinor are going to try to come as well, as is Stormy Petrel President Fran Martin.
SOB Sonia Fetherston will bring Sherlockian-themed valentines, many from the early 1900s, including just a few, we are told, that are a bit racy. Says Sonia: I’ll bring about 75, most from the 1940s and 1950s. The oldest is from 1906, the newest from last year. They’re really colorful, and fun! My plan is to donate them all to the SH Collections at the University of Minnesota. Feel free to bring your cameras to the meeting. Many of the valentines are rare, and I want to invite people to take as many pictures as they’d like.”
