Many thanks to our sponsors to the right for helping make this year’s dinner possible.
The annual dinner and meeting of the Milton Society of America was held on January 8th, 2011 at the Los Angeles Athletic Club, 431 Seventh Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014 (see map below). The social hour began at 6pm in the Main Lounge; dinner was served at 7:15 in the Main Dinning Room; and the general business meeting took place following the meal. The current President of the MSA, Thomas H. Luxon of Dartmouth College, presided. A champagne toast was provided by the journal SEL Studies in English Literature 1500-1900 to celebrate the publication of SEL‘s 50th volume.
The Honored Scholar for 2010, Steve Fallon, Cavanaugh Professor of the Humanities at the University of Notre Dame, addressed the members. Professor John P. Rumrich of the University of Texas at Austin introduced Steve.
Once again, we owe a debt of thanks to Professor Jameela Lares of the University of Southern Mississippi, Treasurer of the Society, for arranging the dinner.
Advertising in the Annual Dinner Program will be accepted up until November 15 for the January dinner. Full-page advertisements, which are also posted to this website, are printed in the program. You are encouraged to be in contact with your publishers concerning space advertisements to promote the sale of books. The advertisements are also an effective way to announce conferences and to publicize activities concerning Milton. There are over 500 members in the Milton Society of America, each of whom has full access to this website. Those members and guests who attend the annual dinner and meeting receive copies of the program at the dinner.
The rates are relatively inexpensive at US$90 per full-page advertisement. The program measures 8.5 x 5.5 inches, so a full-page advertisement should be 7.5 (h) x 4.5 (w) inches. Camera-ready copy should be submitted to the secretary of the Society no later than November 15, 2011 by e-mail attachment. Checks, payable to the Milton Society of America, should also be sent to the Secretary.
