Readercon Schedule

I’m looking forward to my first Readercon next month! Here’s my schedule:

Panel: Defying the Pigeonhole
Thursday, 9pm. Blue Hills.

“This panel of readers will celebrate favorite authors who can’t be contained by a single genre—some exploring multiple genres within one work, some dipping in and out of them throughout their careers—and talk about the ways they break free of expectations to soar.”

With Marissa Lingen, Michael Dirda, Chandler Klang Smith, and Ellen Datlow.

Friday, 7pm. Salon B.

I plan on reading both published and new material.

Date: Friday, June 22
Time: 8PM TO 10PM
Place: Elkins Central: The Elkins Park Train Station Arts Venue

I’ll be reading alongside Nathaniel Popkin, Tom McAllister, Madeline Miller, and Robin Black.
