It’s not the most essential thing I’ve been writing a post about, but I wanted to follow up on a request from this year’s Readercon.
Every year for the past several, at least, Readercon has had an event called “Meet the Pros(e)” on Saturday night of the convention. The program participants are given stickers with quotes from their work (which they’ve previously selected for this purpose) and encouraged to pass them out to fans and pros alike at a meet-and-greet type of setting. I’ve collected my stickers for the past couple of years, but this year, I was asked if I could post them online somewhere with the attributions. Sometimes, uh, many of us don’t remember whose words are which after the convention is over. 😉
So here are my pics from my notebook, presented for your perusal. Enjoy!
I love the little drawing Sarah Smith did. And I ❤ Rose Fox, too. 🙂
Stickers got less and less organized as I ran around to collect more:
I’m particularly charmed by the fact that I requested quotes from Danielle Friedman and Liz Gorinsky (despite their lack of sticker ownership), and this is what they came up with.
And, of course, my journal has Moomins in it on random pages.
I’ll close in saying that I was personally really psyched to see Dave Kyle, of the “Dave Kyle says you can’t sit here!” story, at his first Readercon ever. We’ve been friends for a few years now, but this is the first time he’s made it to a convention I’ve chaired. I was very proud. 😉
