About the Conference
When Sandoz enthusiasts gather, the discussion is always lively. Although scholars might present, this is not a scholarly symposium. Anyone who enjoys reading and wants to learn is welcome. The one-day format allows lots of interaction with other attendees who attend and with the speakers. One of the popular sessions, the round-tables, discusses a book written by Mari Sandoz. Each year, the committee suggests reading, re-reading or brushing up on a specific book, but participants are welcome to listen as well.
Through this event, the Sandoz Society fulfills its vision to perpetuate and foster an understanding of the works of Mari Sandoz; and to honor the land and the people about which she wrote: Native Americans, ranchers, farmers and the people who settled the High Plains. So come, put on your jeans and boots and learn with us.
