Chicon Updates and More!


Hello, readers! Outside of calendar maintenance, I obviously haven't been doing too much with Positron since the beginning of the pandemic. (And if you happened to miss it, you might want to check out the big giant Book Club Report I did back in the early summer of 2020.)

However! I'm planning to dust off Positron a little bit, since Worldcon will be here in September. I'm helping out a little bit with Chicon 8, and I'd like to use Positron for some unofficial, supplemental Chicago info.

That said, here are a few of the bigger events for the upcoming months. For individual book clubs and author events, check the calendar!

  • 4/30: Indie Bookstore Day! Bookstores all across the greater Chicagoland will be doing some cool stuff; it's a great time to go visit a few. Read more on IndieBound, and check out the Chicago-specific deals at ChiLovesBooks.
  • 5/7: DePaul Pop Culture Conference: A Celebration of Sherlock Holmes. DePaul's Pop Culture cons are lovely, free, and welcoming events, the perfect mix of scholarly and fannish energy. You can check out details on their site.
  • 5/27-5/30: Wiscon is back at it, with their first in-person meeting since 2019. Just up in Madison. Details here.
And it's not too long until Chicon: September 1-5.

I'll have some more Worldcon material soon, stay posted!
