Readercon 25, Meet the Pros(e)

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.  😉

Readercon 25

I don’t have time to blog about it, really, but Readercon 25 started last night. This is the third and final time (at least in a row, at least for now) that I’m chairing the con. I’m so very proud of this team, glad to be a part of it, and excited to see things working. Just wanted to take a moment to note that, since too often we blog about and commemorate the challenges rather than the triumphs.

Also, here is an adorable photo of one of our guests of honor, Andrea Hairston, with her birthday cake. 🙂
