Sirens Compendium Available  
(You were surprised to see that icon on your friendslist, weren't you? We miss you too. Here's some news from Narrate Conferences.)

We're pleased to announce that the first compendium from Sirens is now available!

Sirens: Collected Papers 2009–2011 combines written versions of presentations from three years of Sirens, a conference on women in fantasy literature. During those years, presenters were encouraged to analyze women warriors, fairies, and monsters. Presentations for Sirens were chosen by vetting boards made up of scholars, professionals, and readers. Following each year’s conference, presenters were invited to submit text versions of their presentations for the Sirens compendium; twenty-five of the nearly ninety presentations from 2009–2011 are represented in these collected papers.

The publisher, Narrate Conferences, Inc. (http://www.narrateconferences.org), is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that presents innovative conferences and events for teens and adults. The Narrate Conferences mission is to provide unique opportunities for scholars, students, professionals and readers to discuss books, television, films, other media and popular culture.

You can review the table of contents by visiting the Sirens compendium page at http://www.sirensconference.org/programming/compendium.html or by visiting the Narrate Conferences compendia page at http://www.narrateconferences.org/education/compendia.html.

The Sirens compendium can be ordered through the link above or through your local independent bookstore. For more about Sirens, please visit http://www.sirensconference.org.
