Description

About the Meeting

The Sub-Librarians and Red Circle scion societies of the Baker Street Irregulars will hold a joint meeting during the American Library Association Annual Conference in Washington, DC. The event will take place at the District ChopHouse and will feature keynote speaker Marsha Pollak.

This event is co-sponsored by CORE: Leadership Infrastructure Futures, a division of the American Library Association.

About the Keynote Speaker

Marsha Pollak is a retired librarian who lives in San Jose, California. She is a member of The Baker Street Irregulars (BSI), the Adventuresses of Sherlock Holmes (ASH), and several local scion societies across the United States, and has served as the chair of The Sub-Librarians for 40 years.


Marsha’s career and marriage have taken her from her native Cincinnati to New York, Florida, Texas, and California, joining scion societies along the way. As a member of the BSI (her investiture is "A Small but Select Library"), she coordinates the BSI Trust’s Oral History Project, serves as general editor for the BSI Press Professions Series, and presents the "Standing on the Terrace" memorial remembrances at the BSI annual dinners.


In addition, The Sub-Librarians and The Red Circle will continue their traditional, irregular toasts. And, no doubt, Dana Richards of The Red Circle will present yet another diabolical quiz.
