I'm on two panels, both of them Saturday:
Adolescent Heroines in Sci-Fi and Fantasy
Saturday July 7, 2012 9:30am - 10:30am @ Atrium 7
Hermione, Katniss and beyond. Great examples of young women in speculative fiction. Panelists: Kathy Sullivan, Haddayr Copley-Woods, Naomi Kritzer, Michael Levy
The Importance of Faith in Fiction
Saturday July 7, 2012 8:30pm - 9:30pm @ Atrium 3
Lust, greed, anger, revenge are all common motivators seen in fiction, but in the real world, faith is often just as strong or stronger. Why is the power of belief so powerful? How do you incorporate it in worldbuilding? Panelists: Bryan Thomas Schmidt, Caroline Symcox, Naomi Kritzer, Steven Philip Jones, Emma Bull
I'm not doing a reading or signing, but if you have something you want me to sign, feel free to just waylay me wherever you spot me. I will be there on Friday and Saturday, and will have Molly with me, which means we'll be playing the Steam Century Mystery LARP on Saturday and I will probably be
stuck in found in the open gaming rooms a fair amount.
It's possible I'll come without Molly for a while on Thursday evening. The odds of this will be increased if I have specific people I'm going over to meet, so let me know if you want me to come hang out with you. The thing about Convergence is that it is HUGE, so simply going over in the hopes of running into people you know is somewhat risky unless you have some idea of where to look for them.
