The Keynote Speaker this year is Justice Betty Roberts.  Betty Roberts 
was the first woman on the Oregon Supreme Court, and was also the first 
woman on the Oregon Court of Appeals">Oregon Court of Appeals.  Roberts' 
recently published memoir, /With Grit and By Grace: Breaking Trails in 
Politics and Law/, is the story of her remarkable life, and it 
describes, first-hand, the hard won accomplishments that have marked the 
career of one of Oregon's most important leaders. In her keynote session 
Thursday morning, Justice Roberts will share stories from her career and 
from the time spent writing and researching her memoir.  In honor of her 
audience, Roberts will introduce us to the intricacies of her research 
process and the many librarians she met along the way-all the more 
reason that this session promises to inspire.  Do not miss it. 

In addition, after the morning break on Thursday, there will be an 
informal and more intimate discussion of /With Grit and By Grace/, which 
follows Betty Roberts' rise from Depression-era childhood on the Texas 
plains to become a teacher, lawyer, state legislator, candidate for 
governor, and eventually, Oregon's first woman Supreme Court Justice.  
In this follow-up to the keynote session, Justice Roberts will lead the 
discussion and answer questions.  Reading the memoir beforehand is 
recommended, but not required.
