Capricon is coming up in a few hours, and I can attend since it’s gone virtual this year. Getting to check out some cons that I normally can’t afford to attend has been an unexpected positive in the pandemic.
Here’s my schedule, I hope to see some friendly faces (or names if your cameras are off) in the audience.
The Young Shall Inherit the Earth:Wondrous Worlds of YA – Panel – Moderator Thursday, February 4; 5-6pm (central time) Other panelists include Kathryn Sullivan, Donna J.W. Munro, and Cindy Matthews
Something Familiar – Reading Saturday, February 6; 11:30am-12:00 noon (central time) I will read the first few chapters of Something Familiar, which will also be available on the virtual freebie table.
Future of Accessibility – Panel – Panelist Sunday, February 7; 12-1pm (central time) Our moderator will be W A (Bill) Thomasson and Miss Chief will be our other panelist.
It’s not too late to register to attend Capricon. The rate is a very affordable $10, and if that would be a hardship, you can actually register for $0, because organizers know times are tough
