Hello, Warren:
I think I have sent in a registration form, but I need to make sure we have reserved the right events.  The conference banquet is fine.  I'm not sure it was one of the original choices.  We definitely want to attend the "Milton in Music" and the reading of "Samson Agonistes."
Many thanks,
Margaret Arnold

Dear colleagues,
Here is an update on the forthcoming International Milton Seminar 
(IMS9) in London, 6-11 July 2008. We have decided to include a 
conference banquet on the evening of Thursday, 10 July, instead of the 
boat ride down the Thames originally planned. The banquet will be at 
the Imperial Hotel, overlooking Russell Square, at £31 per person. 
Other fringe events with extra charges include "Milton in Music", a 
concert of settings of Milton by Handel and other composers peformed 
by the Apollo Chamber Orchestra and soloists on Tuesday evening at St 
Giles Cripplegate (the church where Milton is buried), £15; and (as 
alternatives, since they are both scheduled on Wednesday afternoon) a 
semi-staged reading of "Samson Agonistes" at St Giles Cripplegate, £8; 
and a coach trip to Milton's cottage in Chalfont St Giles, £12. The 
conference fee is £135 for those registering on or before 15 May 2008 
and £145 afterwards. We strongly recommend early registration, since 
the fringe events (other than the conference dinner) are open to the 
public, and tickets will go on public sale after 15 May. Plenary 
speakers include Ian Archer, Stanley Fish, Achsah Guibbory, Geoffrey 
Hill (reading his recent poems), Ann Hughes, Laura Knoppers, Nicholas 
von Maltzahn, John Rumrich, Regina Schwartz, anbd Quentin Skinner, and 
there will also be a lecture, open to the public, by Annabel Patterson.
Registration forms, in Word or PDF format, can be downloaded from the 
website of the Institute of English Studies, http://ies.sas.ac.uk <http://ies.sas.ac.uk/> . Go 
to the website, and then to "events" and "conferences", with a link to 
the registration forms. There is also information about hotels and 
other accommodations in London on the IES website. It promises to be 
an excellent conference, and I look forward to seeing many of you there.
Best wishes,
Warren Chernaik
