The club’s National Convention is happening in East Aurora, New York from August 6-9, 2020. Join us at the Roycrofters Arts & Crafts community where W.W. Denslow worked before creating his history-making illustrations for L Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The 2020 convention will celebrate the Royal Illustrators of Oz—in particular Denslow and John R. Neill—as well as Arts and Crafts of Oz. We will have a grand banquet at the Roycroft Inn and hands-on classes in book illumination and printmaking on the Roycroft campus. Other special events include a dedication of a Denslow stone marker on Roycroft’s Appian Way, and a “haunting” ghost tour.
Rooms will be available at the Hampton Inn. Most of the regular programming including the auction, will be at the Hampton Inn, along with a banquet, museum display and book arts classes at the Roycroft (with about a 10 minute walk between them).
