Margaret Atwood is among the many luminary and inspiring writers who have been a part of the San Miguel conference and found it “packed with avid listeners!” Author Tom Robbins commented: “If Dante had had the San Miguel experience, he may have written more bout heaven and less about hell.”
I know I will be enriched by the many people I will have an opportunity to speak with and listen to…Looking forward to the sun and more!
