Four speakers will appear at the Numismatic Literary Guild Symposium at 10 a.m. on Aug. 16 in Room 117 of the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia during the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money.

They will speak on the theme, “Cultivating New Collectors with Online Blogs and Publicity.”

The public is invited to attend.

The speakers are author and CDN Publishing Editor Joshua McMorrow-Hernandez; CoinWeek Editor and podcast host Charles Morgan; NLG Acting Executive Director and former journalist and broadcaster Donn Pearlman; and blogger, author and former ANA vice president Scott A. Travers.

“Whether it’s using a tabletop computer or a small smartphone, the numismatic hobby as a whole must do more online to educate current collectors and attract new people to the hobby,” said Pearlman.

At 7:30 p.m., NLG will hold its 50th anniversary Bash.

Open to the public, the 2018 Bash will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Liberty Ballroom A&B of the Philadelphia Marriott Hotel, 1201 Market St.

Admission is $15 at the door and includes a buffet dinner and dessert.
