Thursday: SFWA Board meeting all morning, but I'll be wandering around in the late afternoon and evening.
11:00 - 11:45: Kaffee Klatsche in CC - 202A-KK1. You can sign up here or just show up.
1:30 - 2:00: Reading in CC - 301.
2:00 - 2:45: Managing Your Online Brand in CC - 401C with Jim Wright , Frank Catalano and Marah Searle-Kovacevic. On social media, are you a person or a brand? Do you handle interactions differently depending on what type of social media you're on? And what happens when you're involved in a brou-ha-ha? How is it different for a group and for an individual?
5:00 - 5:45: Autographing with Scott Lynch , Susan Palwick , Phyllis Irene Radford , Susan Forest , Tina Connolly , Ellen Datlow (whew!) in CC - Hall B.
10:00 - 10:45: From Middle Earth to Westeros: Fantasy Worldbuilding in CC - Integra Telecom Ballroom 100B with Pat Cadigan , Martha Wells, Michael Swanwick , Mary Soon Lee . Building a believable world, with believable geography, culture, and rules, is at least as important in fantasy as it is in SF. The panel looks at how to create fantasy worlds, citing examples of the good (and maybe the not so good).
1:00 - 3:00: SFWA Business Meeting in CC - 300B.
