One of the first things I did at WisCon was attend The Gathering, which is sort of like an indoor carnival. A volunteer was decorating people with the calligraphed word of their choice. Mine lasted most of the long weekend.
My books were for sale at A Room of One’s Own, Madison’s feminist bookstore. I signed these copies for them. That’s a Carol Emshwiller collection to the left, and some N.K. Jemisin novels in front. I’m in good company!
Saturday night, I attended the Tiptree Auction, which raises money for the travel costs and cash prizes given to the winners of the award. Hosted by author Ellen Klages, who is a hilarious auctioneer, it’s one of the premier events of the con. This is one of the items for sale.
