Vol 10 No 1. Friday, January 10, 2020: Well. It’s been a while, eh? It’s a good thing absolutely nothing happened since May of last year, or else this newsletter would get quite unwieldy! Seriously though, there will needs be omissions from the second half of last year to get this out sometime this (new) decade, but what a year we had and are going to have, with books, readings, conventions, awards, and more.
First, if it feels like we should have been meeting up in person this past weekend, but somehow weren’t, that’s because illogiCon took a year off to reorganize and secure a new hotel for 2021.
Second, do see the last section of the newsletter for the complete upcoming events listing, but before the end of January we’ll see the multi-author “Voices Rising” reading at Flyleaf, Kwame Mbalia at the Chapel Hill Library, a Jeremy Whitley comics workshop at Quail Ridge Books, and the launch party for Scott Reintgen’s newest book, Ashlords. And! Some highlights of the further-ahead events include Kim Stanley Robinson’s February appearance at the NC Book Festival, the Flyleaf Books reading with Dept. Of Speculation author Jenny Offill for Weather, and (again at Flyleaf) Madeline Miller visits for the paperback release of Circe.
