SBL San Diego

The program for the upcoming SBL conference has now been online (www.sbl-site.org/congresses/Congresses_ProgramBook.aspx?MeetingId=7).  One of the unfortunate scheduling issues is that even though the conference technically begins on Nov. 17, there are a good number of sessions on the 16th that I wasn’t aware of when I booked my flight.  One session, in particular, appears very promising, but I fear many will miss it because they, like I, assumed that the sessions would actually fall within the dates they advertised.  Note:
