Closing Keynote

Marilyn-Johnson150x175Marilyn Johnson is the author of This Book Is Overdue!; How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All (Harper Perennial, 2011), The Dead Beat: Lost Souls, Lucky Stiffs, and the Perverse Pleasures of Obituaries (Harper Perennial, 2007), and most recently, Lives in Ruins: Archaeologists and the Seductive Lure of Human Rubble (Harper Perennial, 2015).
