"I learned a lot from the tours, panels, and workshops, but the best part for me was that every person in attendance was just as enthusiastic about book arts as I am. … I learned the most from doing the student portfolio review and the member's showcase. I am a relatively young book artist, but I got lots of useful feedback on my work and I had the priceless opportunity to put myself and my books out into the world." —Sloan Marshall, drawing and illustration student
