Fred Reed forwarded this press release about the upcoming Author's Forum at the Memphis International Paper Money Show.
All bibliomaniacs and readers of books are invited to the 7th Annual Society of Paper Money Collectors Author's Forum. The event, which annually brings together book authors, publishers, hobbyists and wannabe authors, is unique in the numismatic hobby. Topics this year run the gamut of U.S. and international paper money topics.
This year's event will be held this Friday, June 18th, 2010, at the Memphis Marriott Downtown Hotel, Memphis, TN at noon-2 p.m. in Heritage Ballrooms 3 & 4 during the Memphis International Paper Money Show.
The forum includes book presentations by published authors of new works, and a chance for authors and readers to interact, purchase books and have them signed. "This forum was conceived as a way for authors and prospective authors of paper money books to exchange ideas, 'tricks of the trade,' and
form mutual support on the long road between conception and publication of a worthwhile book," SPMC President Mark Anderson noted.
Authors this year include
Dr. Fred Bart, author of United States Paper Money Errors, A Comprehensive Catalog & Price Guide (Krause, 2009);
Cory Frampton, author of Mexican Paper Money (Mexican Coin Co., 2010);
Morland Fischer, author of World Paper Money Errors (Zyrus Press, 2010); and a trio of authors who collaborated on Confederate Treasury Certificates: A Collector's Guide to IDRs (self-published, 2010), George Tremmel, Dr. John Martin Davis Jr., and Pierre Fricke. Emcee for the event is Wendell Wolka, author of several books himself.
The SPMC Author's Forum, in coordination with our Society’s George W. Wait Memorial Prize which supports research of book length paper money projects, and its Wismer Publishing Program are parts of SPMC’s outreach to hobbyists
in support of numismatic education. Inquiries about the forum should be addressed to forum coordinator Fred Reed at email@example.com. Information about SPMC may be obtained from Membership Director Frank Clark, P.O. Box 117060, Carrollton, TX 75011-7060.
SPMC thanks Lyn Knight, Memphis show proprietor, and Doug Davis, show chairman, of the Memphis International Paper Money Show for providing arrangements for the forum.
