NOTE: As you can see below, there’s a timing conflict between these two panels. I’ll be at both, but half-time — skipping from Surviving Well to The Secret Origin.
12:30-1:30 Surviving Well— Saving the world, etcetera is always important, but so is the quality of life for the survivors. WonderCon Anaheim special guest Marjorie Liu (Labyrinth of Stars), Cecil Castellucci (The Tin Star), Genese Davis (The Holder’s Dominion), John Mulhall (Geddy’s Moon) and Gretchen McNeil (3:59) discuss when “just” saving the world is not enough. Moderated by LeAnna Herrera of Mysterious Galaxy. Room 208
12:30-2:00 The Secret Origin of Good Readers— Learn how to incorporate comic books into your classroom. New York Times bestselling author Frank Beddor (The Looking Glass Wars, Hatter M), New York Times bestselling author Marjorie Liu (Astonishing X-Men, Dirk & Steele), Harvey Award nominee Anthony Del Col (Kill Shakespeare), and Mimi Cruz (Night Flight Comics) will provide insight and discuss how students can create their own comics in a classroom setting. Newly updated, The Secret Origin of Good Readers resource book is a free PDF download at www.night-flight.com/secretorigin/index.html courtesy of XMission.com. Room 203
