Chicon schedule

A few days have passed since I received my schedule. So, whilst keeping in mind that things may still change:

Fri Aug 31 10:30:am–11:00:am Reading: Kristine Smith (Grand Suite 3)

Fri Aug 31 12:00:pm–1:30:pm Autograph Session 3 (Riverside center Exhibition Hall)
Adam-Troy Castro, Edward Willett, Eric Flint, Kristine Smith, Mr. Magic Realism/Bruce Taylor, Nancy Kress, Scott Edelman, Tom King

Sat Sep 1 1:30:pm–2:00:pm Writer Under Glass #36 (Fan Lounge)
This isn’t actually a panel, but a stunt. Writers volunteer to sit in a certain place for 30-40 minutes each and write serially on a collaborative story. Each takes up where the previous left off throughout the run of the convention. The resulting manuscript will be printed out only once, signed by all the writers, and entered into the charity auction as a contribution from all the writers. Con attendees can watch the writers at work–this has to be done in public like Harlan Ellison’s writing in shop windows–but may not harass them. The attendees can watch what\’s being written in real time on a remote monitor. The story is complete at the end of the con and no other copies will be made without consent of all the writers who participated.

Sun Sep 2 10:30:am–12:00:pm Kaffeeklatsche with: Kristine Smith (Kaffeeklatsche 1)

A low-key schedule, which is nice. I’ll have time to enjoy the con.
