WisCon and GOHs
WisCon is the world's leading feminist science fiction convention. Held from 5/22-25 this year, Wiscon will feature two fantastic Guests of Honor Ellen Klages and Geoff Ryman. From Wiscon's website:
WisCon encourages discussion and debate of ideas relating to feminism, gender, race and class. WisCon welcomes writers, editors and artists whose work explores these themes as well as their many fans. We have panel discussions, academic presentations, and readings as well as many other uncategorizable events. WisCon is primarily a book-oriented convention... with an irrepressible sense of humor.
Memberships are still available at the door. If you're anywhere near Madison or interested in feminist sf, get thee hence. Gotta say, these folks know how to party...
