Windycon 42 November 13-15 at the Westin Yorktown in Lombard, Illinois.
If you’re in the Chicago area, stop by Windycon this year where I’ll be a panelist. It’s a very family-friendly con with great panels on gaming, sci-fi, and fantasy. You can read more about the convention online!

- Saturday 6:00 Zen Scavenger Hunt: Lilac A: Panelists each bring ten items. Audience members ask for a type of item, a la a standard scavenger hunt.
