The following was posted on Chaplin scholar Lisa Stein Haven's Facebook page today. Lisa just attended the annual Buster Keaton Celebration in Iola, KS this weekend:
"Next year's Buster Keaton Celebration, held the last weekend in September in Iola, Kansas, just five miles from Buster's birthplace, will have the theme: "Keaton and Chaplin," with Kate Guyonvarch as one of our guests of honor. This two-day event is FREE and Iola is a very modest and inexpensive venue...Frank Scheide, Hooman Mehran, Keith Goering and I are all on the organizing committee. "
Sounds exciting. I'm hoping to be able to attend and it would be great to meet some fellow fans and friends there as well.
