Of Interest to Harry Potter fans

There's going to be a table over at the Hyatt for Ascendio, the eighth Harry Potter fan event put on by HPEF (we did Infinitus in '10, as well as Azkatraz, Prophecy, Witching Hour and more) - and from Friday through Monday, we'll be doing a few trivia challenges via Twitter.

You can follow us at http://www.twitter.com/HPEF - we've got a bunch of trivia questions we'll be asking over the weekend, and if you know the answer, swing by our table and tell us - the first five people to come by with the correct answer will win a Harry Potter-themed prize or some HPEF swag.

We'll also be taking registrations for Ascendio and while on the website you can only pay with credit cards, at Dragon*Con, you'll be able to use cash if that's your preference.

Come by and say hi! We'll have candy! (While supplies last, and we have a lot of supplies.)


HP7P2 Premiere Get-together?

Hey there! Is there a group getting together for the HP premiere? I'm wondering if it's going to be at Hollywood 24 and if so, when? Thanks and hugs!

"Upcoming Books" Panel

I know it's way early to whine about not having a handout posted from the con, but I'm impatient! I missed out on the Upcoming Books panel and didn't get a handout, and the www.encounteringenchantment.com and www.bonniekunzel.com websites haven't been updated since 2008 (or I'm navigationally challenged and can't find them). Can anyone scan in the handout so I can start filling out order forms for my local independent bookseller?

Everyone Loves a Parade

Okay guys...We're 9 days and counting so if you are planning to march in the parade this year I want to hear from you!

I would like to get some idea of how many ribbons I need to ask for when we register for the parade so if you plan on marching with YA LIT, please either comment on this LJ post, or send me an email at zeta0497@gmail.com, that would be great! See you all soon!

Please remember that if you're planning on wearing a YA costume, it is customary that you march behind the YA Lit banner. You are welcome to bring your own banners if you have a group that is marching together, but it will need to also march behind the YA Lit track banner. NEW THIS YEAR - there is no throwing items into the crowd. The city of Atlanta has actually mandated this. This is not our doing so no matter how small or harmless you think it might be, we don't want anyone to get hurt or in trouble.

Thanks guys!
