George Justice and I were privileged to serve as co-presidents of the Samuel Johnson Society of the Central Region, hosting its annual meeting at Arizona State University on March 6-7. The conference featured ten fabulous papers by junior and senior scholars, as well as a stunning keynote address, "Johnson's Preface to Shakespeare at 250," by Prof. Joseph Roach of Yale University. Thank you to all who presented, participated, attended, and supported the conference. See you next year at Northwestern University, with our president, Prof. Vivasvan Soni.
