Ad Astra Convention 2008

As some of you may remember from this time last year, I participated ever so briefly at the Ad Astra Fantasy/SF convention here in Toronto as a prize girl.

Well not only am I reprising my role, but this year I will also be sitting on a panel and doing a workshop for young people. If anyone is in town this weekend or is going, please let me know as I love to meet people in person (Ms. Hick can attest to that)!

So here's the info:

March 29th - 30th, 2008 - TORONTO, ONTARIO

Young Writers Workshop (Saturday March 29, 11am - Salon 243)*
"Julie E. Czerneda and Adrienne Kress will be running the workshop. This free one and a half hour workshop is for Ad Astra attendees from the ages of 11 to 17. The workshop is free of charge but participants will need to register in advance. Spots are limited so please contact programming (at) if you'd like to register."

Sunburst Awards Auction (Saturday March 29, 1:30pm - Reflections Room)*

In the past they have auctioned off items such as a signed copy of Neil Gaiman's novel Fragile Things and a character named after the winning bidder in a Cory Doctorow novel. Come check out the exciting goodies this year!" - hosting along with Lesley Livingston and Peter Halasz

Man, that sounds like fun!

However, my kids and I will be accompanying Daddy HIck to the recording studio to sweep up construction dust...

Everybody, go meet Adrienne and bring your kids!

I'd really love to attend one of these. But, y'know, opposite side of the country. And, well, not a writer, either.
