"Engage a special." [FINA]

As you know, the Baker Street Irregulars weekend is the major annual Sherlockian event about which we get fairly excited. But there's another annual gathering that, while it may not be as extensive, is worthy of your attention.

A Scintillation of Scions is an annual symposium held in Maryland that is a wonderful combination of scholarship, fun, silliness and friendship. There's always plenty of merchandise to shop, a banquet, and even a charitable element. It is everything that we believe being a Sherlockian is all about.

If you'd like to read about what it was like to attend the latest Scintillation, we have a write-up from one of our own contributors who was there.

Discount Available

The event is now in its ninth year, and will be held from June 10-11, 2016 at the Sheraton/BWI Airport Hotel. And we here at I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere are pleased to offer a discount to our readership.
