Two more days until Grand Rapids! Despite the hefty grading pile haunting me, I am really looking forward to StokerCon 2019.
There are basically panels every hour that I want to go to, but we will see what’s humanly possible. Otherwise, here’s my StokerCon schedule for the things I’ll 100% be at. Come say hi! I’m ridiculously excited to see everyone…and okay, for the ice cream social, too. I’m still comprehending that I’m nominated for a Stoker, but you know I’m beyond excited to be at the banquet, too!
*Find me wandering around, braindead from the amount of grading I did this week, probably wherever there’s a bar; I may be hysterically excited to see some of my grad friends at this time (fair warning)
10:00am, Emerald Room: I’m moderating a SUPERSTAR-filled panel for Historical Horror: Kathleen Kaufman, Lisa Kroger, Lisa Morton, Alma Katsu, Kevin Wetmore, Jr. (like seriously these people are amazing and I can’t wait to interrogate them)
3:00pm, Winchester Room; Reading Block with Donna Lynch, Saba Razvi, and myself (will it rock? YES.)5:00-6:30pm, Crown Foyer BOOKS AND ICE CREAM; I’ll bring copies of things and sign things. Will people buy them? I don’t know but there will be ice cream, so it’s all good.
12:00-1:00pm, Grand View Room B-C; Weird Poetry panel moderated by David Cowen; I’ll be on here with these amazing poets: Mary Turzillo, Randy Rubin, Donna Lynch, Marge Simon, Frank Coffman
7:00-10:00pm, Bram Stoker Awards and Banquet (yay!)
*Crying because it’s over; stumbling downstairs in the morning to the hotel’s Starbucks; telling everyone I love them
