The BSC-SbC Council has voted to cancel the 2020 Bibliographical and Book Studies in Canada Conference after consulting with our prospective presenters and assessing the many difficulties and stresses of mounting a virtual conference. We do not want to add to the many demands on our members at this difficult time. Meanwhile, we will explore options for running a virtual Annual General Meeting.
May you all find solace in a good book or two, stay well and take care of yourselves and your families.
