  1. Hi! I’m a member, and just as I was signing up for the Fall Conference, I noticed that the ticket price included $4.95 for shipping and handling.
    That’s pretty pricey for an online ticket purchase.

    1. It is stated on the online registration price that there is a 3% paypal charge. We collect that via “shipping and handling”. Thanks and see you soon!

  2. I cannot come Friday night, but would like to hear my childhood writer heroine, Bodie Thoene, speak – is there a way to just register for Saturday, and is she speaking both morning and afternoon? Thanks so much!
