SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Slippery Rock University's Anne Slanina, associate professor of elementary education and early childhood development, was among the featured speakers at the Miles of Possibility Route 66 Conference Oct. 29-31 in Edwardsville, Illinois.

The event featured two days of conference sessions and panel discussions by internationally known Route 66 authors, artists, historians and experts.
