Gala Celebration Marks Ephemera Society of
America's 25th Year
The Ephemera Society of America opens its 25th
anniversary celebrations on March 18th, 19th,
and 20th in Old Greenwich, CT with a gala conference
and paper fair that has a silver ring to it, and celebrates paper
glories that are worth far more than the precious metal.
In this milestone year, those who attend Ephemera
25 will see why ephemera's following is growing. The energy
that has gone into Ephemera 25 is catching. Attendees will
meet nationally known speakers and encounter exhibits that have
been months in the making. There is also the paper fair that is
considered by many to be the best in the country with 80 dealers
offering virtually every kind of rare printed or manuscript ephemera.
The Society's gala 25th Anniversary
banquet on Saturday night, March 19th, will feature
Will Shortz, known worldwide as both a collector and creator of
puzzling ephemera. We'll also honor longtime Society member
Jay Last with the Maurice Rickards Award. You can read more about
each in this Ephemera 25 Extra. Cocktails and a live benefit
auction, whose catalog has been posted on the Web to allow absentee
bids from anywhere, will precede the banquet.
A Northeast Document Conservation Center seminar,
exhibits and collectors' forums scheduled for the weekend will
fill whatever free time is left.
