MELISSA MARR

Drinks with Creators

Join authors and other creators for a glass or two in an informal setting. We’ll have door prizes, giveaways and raffles to support Kids Need To Read. $10 to attend.  18+

Action in Fiction

Novels need action, but should that action be a logical part of the story? Melissa Marr covers some basic weapons and how to incorporate them into your fiction.

Female Representation Matters

We’ll discuss the importance and impact on female representation in literature. Learn how stories featuring strong female leads impact the world and how female writers contribute to our culture.

The Easter Eggs of Ready Player One

Chun-Li, King Kong, and Lara Croft…they were all there! Explore the hidden gems of the Oasis with other Ready Player One fans and experts.

Author Batsu

Come see our authors participate in the winner-takes-all (or should we say loser-takes-all?) annual Author Batsu game. For the uninitiated, batsu is a Japanese game in which the loser of a competition is forced to do or experience something unpleasant. This panel always generates raucous laughs and decidedly colorful metaphors!

Bad to the Bone - Villains in Fiction

The very best of the very worst. A great villain makes the hero worth believing in. Authors share their favorite bad guys and gals and the secrets to creating and writing memorable ne’er-do-wells.

*Dates and times to be announced. All programming is subject to change.
