Shared Worlds: First Day and Public Reading Schedule

Shared Worlds camp--first day
(Returning students seeing each other again for the first time in a year)

Today was registration day for Shared Worlds, with the 53 students coming in from as far away as Japan, France, and Germany. It was a hot, hectic day, but also very relaxing and fun—in terms of seeing everyone getting along, and for the returning students renewing old friendships while also keeping the new students in the loop. We haven’t had much in the way of cliques, and we’re happy about that. This is also the most students we’ve had, in this, the fifth year of the program. In year one, we had 20 students.

More soon on Shared Worlds, but I wanted to make readers in the Carolinas aware of three great events:

July 25, Wednesday—Hub City Bookstore (downtown Spartanburg, SC)—6pm, NYT Bestseller Naomi Novik, gaming expert and writer Will Hindmarch, and World Fantasy Award winner Jeff VanderMeer will be reading, signing, and answering questions.

July 31, Tuesday—Hub City Bookstore (downtown Spartanburg, SC)—6pm, NYT Bestseller Tobias Buckell, PKD Award finalist and Amazon Writer-in-Residence Karin Lowachee, Shirley Jackson Award-winner Nathan Ballingrud, and Hugo Award winning editor Ann VanderMeer will be reading, signing, and answering questions. More info on both Hub City readings here (although the time listed there is wrong and Baggott will only be participating in SW via Skype.)

August 4, Saturday–Malaprops (downtown Asheville, NC)–7pm, NYT Bestseller Tobias Buckell, PKD Award finalist and Amazon Writer-in-Residence Karin Lowachee, Shirley Jackson Award-winner Nathan Ballingrud, awesome writer and gaming expert Will Hindmarch, World Fantasy Award winner Jeff VanderMeer, and Hugo Award winning editor Ann VanderMeer will be reading, signing, and answering questions.
