This weekend, I'm off to another fantasy/science fiction convention!!!
For some reason, as I'm writing this blog entry, this song keeps running through my head.
Yes, there are frequently Muppets singing in my head. It's fun in here.
Anyway, the convention is called Lunacon. It's in Rye, NY. And I will be a program participant. Yay! You can check out my schedule here on Lunacon's snazzy website. Or you could, you know, just read this:
Fri. March 16, 7pm - Panel - Keith DeCandido, Sarah Beth Durst, Elizabeth Glover, Victoria McManus - "So It's Your First Con"
Sat. March 17, 10am - Panel - Sarah Beth Durst, Josepha Sherman, Catherynne M. Valente - "Writing Fairy Tales"
Sun. March 18, 10am - Panel - Sarah Beth Durst, Tamora Pierce, Catherynne M. Valente - "Children's Fantasy"
Sun. March 18, 11am - Panel - Patricia Bray, Sarah Beth Durst, Amy Goldschlager, Tamora Pierce - "Danger in Children's Fantasy"
Sun. March 18, 12:30pm - Reading - Sarah Beth Durst
My first panel is with Keith DeCandido, an excellent writer and a great guy. I met Keith at the very first convention that I ever attended (so long ago that it fades into the dim recesses of memory), so I think it's particularly cool that I'll be on a panel with him at Lunacon and particularly appropriate that the panel is called "So It's Your First Con."
(Yes, when you search Google Images for "dim recesses," it gives you a vampire squid.)
I have two (count 'em: two!!!) panels with Tamora Pierce. 'Nuf said.
And then I finish with a reading from INTO THE WILD! I can't wait!
Hope to see you there.
