The one event was great. A local bookstore hosts a Guests of Honor reception and reading every year to kick off the con. This year's GoH are Sofia Samatar, Justine Larbalestier, and Nalo Hopkinson, an awesome line-up, and I enjoyed listening to all of them read their work. Samatar and Larbalestier each read an excerpt from their most recently published novel, and Hopkinson -- who is one of my all-time favorite readers -- shared a short story from a forthcoming anthology.
Now I need to retire to an easy chair (my room has two of them, it's pretty cozy) and carefully peruse the program book, because I have no idea how to choose between all the interseting-sounding panels. Wish me luck!
