Emmy Jackson, Thomas Gregory, Lori Holuta, Robyn Bennis, Pip Ballantine, Susan Hillwig, Geoffrey Mandragora, Zig Zag Claybourne, Phoebe Darqueling, & Crysta Coburn
We always hear our favorite authors reading from their own work, but what about the cool things they’ve read? What are some of the works that our writers think are must-reads, or have just always wanted to perform? Come to the Writer’s Block after hours, have some snacks, and pull up a chair for this freeform performance session!

Eatin’ Mummies and Other Strange Victorian Fads
Sunday 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Salon 3
Lori Holuta, Sarah Hans, & Jacqueline Carey 

Kind of self-explanatory, isn’t it? This one is a historical panel discussing a number of the more… unusual pastimes of the Victorian era.

Now that you know where I’ll be, find me and say hello! And do pop into the Writer’s Block often. That’s where all the authors books will be on sale, and us writers plan to hang out there and chat as much as possible.
