CULS Luncheon 2013
The CULS Luncheon & Meeting will be held on:
Wednesday, October 9th from 12 noon – 2pm in the Sunflower Ballroom.
Don’t forget to buy your CULS luncheon tickets at the KLA Online Store when you purchase your KLA Conference tickets.
Our luncheon speaker this year is Matt Porubsky. Matt is a well-known Kansas poet and the owner of Porubsky’s Deli, a restaurant steeped in Topeka history, which he will be imparting to us during his talk. Since Porubsky’s is known for its excellent chili, Matt will bring along some of his hot pickles for librarians to sample.
