Thank you so much to all who attended! Over 40 people attended our first ever public conference and we so appreciate your participation in this unique event. We came away with new ideas, new friends, and many additions to our “to read” lists. There were so many wonderful resources we had to make a list. It is below. If you’d like to purchase some of the books mentioned at the event or listed below, you can visit the Libertia Society Amazon store where you will find links to these as well as other texts.

If you are curious about the event and would like to learn more about the speakers or schedule feel free to head over to the event page.
