May 15th Biographer's Conference in Boston

Here's a message from from biographer James McGrath Morris (author of many, most recently, Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print and Power) about a wonderful gathering for biographers on May 15th in Boston:

In a little over two weeks the first ever Compleat Biographer Conference will open at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Sponsored by the new Biographers International Organization (BIO), it will feature at least six Pulitzer and National Book Award prizewinners as well as best-selling authors who are joining other writers, agents, editors, archivists, and librarians in workshops and panels geared to the practical aspects of the craft.

The registration deadline is rapidly approaching. Would you take a moment and think of writing friends who should know about this conference and pass on the word.
