In Case You Missed It/So You Don't: OBOC Finale, Pocket Con, & A Few More

The Chicago Writers Podcast most recent episode is a discussion with Michael Zapata, author of The Lost Book of Adana Moreau.

One Book, One Chicago's selection this fall is Mohsin Hamid's Exit West. The season finale—although quite a few groups will be discussing the book for a month or two after—is a discussion with Hamid, this Thursday, December 3rd, at 7pm.

Pocket Con, a one-day teen-friendly comic-con focused on artists of color, is happening (virtually) this Saturday, December 5th.

Worldcon is going to be in Chicago in 2022 (Chicon 8), and it looks like the Chicon folks are going to be well-represented at Smofcon 37.25 this weekend. Smofcon is a con for con organizers, might be of interest to folks interested in helping out at a convention, improving or starting their own.

It's a little bit away—but then again, here's hoping that lockdown winter passes faster than the regular kind—Capricon, one of Chicago's two home conventions, is also virtual this time, February 4-7. The guests of honor list looks real nice!

As always, you can also check out the Upcoming Events page for loads of book clubs and other events!
