The Historical Novel Society is holding its North American Conference in Salt Lake City on the weekend April 15-17. If you are interested in a very professional conference at which you can learn about writing historical materials, including your own family history, this is an event you will want to consider. This is the first time the conference has been held in the U.S. There will be agents there, too.
I noticed that well-known genealogy author Elizabeth Shown Mills is listed as one of the speakers. You can learn more at http://www.historicalnovelsociety.org/USA/schedule.htm
Bios of the speakers are available at http://www.historicalnovelsociety.org/USA/authors.htm
