The Women's Convocation preparations

The past few weeks Nancy has been diligently preparing for our book display for the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Women’s Convocation V, April 12th and 13th. Catholic women religious plan and present a fabulous program of speakers for their convocation. This is not an annual event. It happens about once every four years. It is held in one of the largest conference venues in the metro Seattle area. Two thousand women are expected to attend.
We will be displaying and selling more than 100 book titles for the 15 well-known authors and speakers on women’s issues. The logistics for us are significant.
It is a women’s event so our booth will be staffed by women while the male staff members of this ministry-which-is-the-store will handle the duties of our bricks and mortar and online store, as well as some of the heavy lifting and delivery of the cartons of books.
It is an interesting and exciting time for us, even during this Holy Week.
After the event I hope to report on what I hear from those who attend about the speakers and some of their thoughts.
