Hi, Barbara, The meeting in Los Angeles is only because of the CSUN conference. People come from all over the country, and so booksharians who are there can meet together. There are displays from all kind of venders, and I think lectures and things. It's nice for people to meet. I live in L.A. and the hotel where the displays and where most people stay is not too far from me--near the airport. Last year and the year before I was able to drop by one day and meet some of our fellow volunteers for coffee one year and for lunch another. Unfortunately, this year I'll be out of town--and I couldn't go to the meeting in the eveningm though I;d have liked to and been able to meet many more who were there. The CSUN conference is held every year in March. If you can't get down there this year, maybe you'll be able to go next year. It looks as if the weather will be warm, and the hotel has a swimming pool people took advantage of.
