Event description


The Scintillation is an annual symposium of fans of Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, sponsored by Watson's Tin Box in Maryland, USA.

Our event includes speakers and attendees from around the U.S., as well as local Sherlockians. The tradition we have established is to have at least one first-time presenter in order to offer an opportunity for them to have the experience of public speaking to a friendly crowd.

The Speakers*

Christopher Zordan, BSI, ASH

Leah Guinn

Beth Austin, ASH

Vincent W. Wright

Karen Shackleford

Michael Sims, author of the forthcoming: ARTHUR AND SHERLOCK: Conan Doyle and the Creation of Holmeshttp://www.michaelsimsbooks.com/Home.htm
