Thursday evening of November 14, saw a gathering of creative members of ASAT for a session of poetry, narrative, and analysis.

For more on the film and on the poetry presenters, go here to the blog.

After the sessions on Friday, November 15, nearly two dozen ASAT-ers found themselves at Tres Mexican Restaurant in Waco for drinks, dinner, and conversation. A good break in a long but enjoyable day.

For pictures of the Friday and Saturday sessions, continue on to the next page. The program for these sessions is here at the blog, along with abstracts of the presentations, more pictures, and notes.

After dinner, we all hustled back over to Baylor University to Kayser Auditorium where we were treated to a delightful special presentation by Donna M. Johnson who gave us insight into the fast disappearing culture of Christian tent revival meetings and life.
