    I read Mr. Kraybill’s book and really enjoyed it. Wish I could go to the conference. The price of the conference is reasonable, but I would have to get a motel, meals, etc. Wish they would have something in my area.

    I would love to attend but those motel rooms are pricey for those of us on fixed incomes.

    I sure wish I could go too. I know Donald Kraybill because he is related to me and because his parents and my parents were very close. My maiden name was Kraybill. His mom and dad were also wonderful Mennonite people…..so full of love.
    Donald came to my Dad’s funeral in Harrisonburg, Virginia. I was so pleased when he wanted all the notes of talks my dad had given at various Mennonite Churches and had carefully kept them in a notebook.
    If any of you can go to this I know you learn so much.

    You're welcome to stay with us during E-town

    AA Readers,

    If you would like to attend the upcoming Tech & the Amish Conference at E-town in early June, we have room for two couples and a single or three singles. We live about 30 minutes from E-town but I will be driving daily so that you can save on both lodging and transportation. We’ll even throw in an oatmeal breakfast–all “fer frei,” as we say. This is going to be a wunderbaa conference. Call us at 717 215 1128 or 717 697 5526 so we know how to plan. We look forward to hosting as many as possible. Rich and Polly Stevick P.S. Our esteemed AA leader, Erik, will be presenting there, as well as lots of folk whose names regularly appear in his blogs. Machs goot. Rich

    Drat, I’d love to attend the conference, too; I’ve read Dr. Kraybill’s book and found it quite informative. And I sure wish I could take the Stevicks up on their guest lodging offer! Unfortunately, I have other commitments during that time period. I’ve had back luck this year with everything I’ve planned; something more important has always come along. And I’d love to have had a chance to meet you too, Erik!

    I do expect a complete and thorough update on the conference and as many breakout sessions as the folks here attend, though — I know I’m not the only one who will be happy to read anything about it you want to share with us!

    Post conference

    I wish I could attend! Will there be any post-conference publication of related articles by presenters at the conference, reviews of the conference, etc? This reminds me of the Luddite Congress (which as far as I know only happened a couple times?) but perhaps with more focus and more potential.

      Conference Papers

      Since I will not be able to attend the conference, I echo Naomi’s desire. Will you make the papers available?

      • Naomi and Marty I don’t think the conference is planning to publish the papers if that is what you are asking. I aim to post some about it but I know that will hardly do it justice, but for what it’s worth. I will let you know here if I learn of any other records of the event being made available.

    I grew up in Elizabethtowm….Groff Ave to be exact. I sure wish I could visit again. I care for my mother who is 91 and has dementia. So I am home most of the time.

    has the session abstracts and several paragraphs of descriptions, but only for Thursday, June 6. Is there another page for Friday and Saturday?

    • They are actually linked to from the conference schedule page, if you just click any of the session links, or here they are:

    I'll be there.

    I registered some time ago, and I’m definitely looking forward to the event. The only problem is going to be deciding between competing workshops! I’ll hope to see you, Erik.
