Miniature Book Society: Conclave XXXIV
Each year the Miniature Book Society hosts an annual gathering of its members referred to as a Conclave. The Conclave - typically a three-day event - is held every autumn in a different city and is eagerly anticipated by the members. Recent Conclaves have been held in Princeton NJ, San Diego CA, Seattle WA, Ann Arbor MI, New Orleans LA and Dublin, Ireland. Attendees look forward to guest speakers, tours, workshops, book auctions, a book swap and an all-day book fair, but most of all, connecting with fellow miniature book enthusiasts and the camaraderie that miniature book lovers share.

Grand Conclave XXXIV will be held in the historic city of McKinney, Texas, about 30 miles northeast of Dallas. McKinney has a vivid and diverse spirit developed from the history that shaped it. Established in 1848, McKinney is named for Collin McKinney, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. The city has grown from a cotton town to a vibrant modern city. It has retained its charming qualities and sense of community, a special heritage attributed to the pioneer spirit of the city’s earliest settlers. The city’s crown jewel is the historic downtown district that is one of the oldest, most authentic and thriving in Texas. Historic McKinney serves as a retail, dining, entertainment and conference destination. With its upscale boutiques, galleries, dining, pubs and winery, McKinney is rich in tradition and charming southern hospitality.

All members who arrive early on Thursday, August 4th, are invited to hop on the Sheraton’s hotel shuttle at 6:30 pm for a 15-minute ride to gorgeous Mitas Hill Vineyards. The vineyard will be at the peak of the Texas grape harvest and you will think you are in Tuscany or Napa Valley. Perched on top of a hill (yes, a hill in Texas), the glass walled octagonal restaurant provides a lush 360° view of the vineyard. Known for its Texas WAGYU steaks, we will wine taste and feast on a fixed price dinner with 2 choices of entree. If you wish to attend this event, include an additional $75. We will return to the Sheraton via hotel shuttle.
