Are you in the Atlanta area over Labor Day weekend? Me too. Here’s my schedule as it currently stands for DragonCon and Decatur Book Fest. I’ll be packing some stickers of the Lois Lane covers, bookmarks featuring same, and a few of the WWLLD bracelets. Come say hi!
- A Safe Space For Female Readers
Description: A discussion about embracing and expanding female readership in Comics.
Time: Friday 1 p.m. Location: Hanover F – Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Gwenda M Bond, Laurenn McCubbin)
- YA Urban and Contemporary Fantasy
Description: Fantasy isn’t just dragons and knights – come see how contemporary characters and places feature in young adult fantasy!
Time: Friday 4 p.m. Location: A707 – Marriott (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Delilah S. Dawson, Gwenda M Bond, Zac Brewer, Christi J. Whitney, Cinda Williams Chima, A. J. Hartley)
- Reading: Gwenda Bond
Time: Saturday 11:30 a.m. Location: Marietta – Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
(Tentative Panelists: Gwenda M Bond)
Note: I’ll update these with confirmed panelists next week. The reading will be a great place to get swag or books signed (in fact, consider this a de facto signing too), and perhaps hear a little snippet of the second Lois book and I’ll have Christopher with me so we might do a short tandem reading from something you will have to keep secret for the time being. I’ll also have a few books with me in case the dealer’s room is in short supply.

I sense this will escalate quickly. *twirls fingers*
School and library visit availability!
I’ve been hearing from more people about whether I’m available for school and library visits and the answer is yes. I’ve put together a page explaining the different presentations I do and the cost; I’m currently booking for the 2016 calendar year, so if you’d like me to visit your school or library get in touch via that page’s contact form.
Super Radio Tonight!
Happy birthday to Lois Joanne Lane today, August 17! In a fitting coincidence, I’ll be a guest on tonight’s “Radio Kal Live,” a weekly show produced by the Superman Homepage. You can listen in and call in with questions. Info and details here. The show starts at 7:30PST/10:30EST.
