The housing registration site is now open for Harriet Beecher Stowe at 200: Home, Nation, and Place in the 21st Century. Thank you for your patience while we worked to have housing and meal options that would be as flexible and affordable as possible. The link to register for housing, meals, and the banquet is http://www.regonline.com/stowesociety

All residential choices include both housing (in Bowdoin College dorms) and meals (in the college dining room). There are two main packages for conference participants: Wednesday night through Sunday morning ($385 plus tax, with meals from Thursday breakfast through Saturday dinner) and Thursday through Sunday morning ($337 plus tax, with meals from Thursday lunch through Saturday dinner). Both packages include the Friday night banquet. A separate banquet-only option is available at $45. The partner/spouse rate ($285 plus tax) reflects the fact that the two will be sharing a room. If you want to bring a child or children, please email the Bowdoin College office directly for information (sumprogs@bowdoin.edu). There is no childcare available. All other rooms are singles, with standard pillow, blanket, sheets, and towels provided. Restrooms, including showers, are designated by gender and located on each floor.

If anyone has specific needs for accommodations that aren’t addressed by this information, contact Beth Lueck (lueckb@uww.edu) or sumprogs@bowdoin.edu (on the registration site).

Those who need a vegetarian option for the banquet should contact me. The banquet will feature a lobster bake; the price includes wine with the meal. There will be vegetarian options available at the college dining room for other meals. The Stowe Society is offering graduate students a free banquet; students should contact Beth Lueck (lueckb@uww.edu) to request this.
