Worldcon Chicago Friday #2

More events I attended:

Estate Planning for Authors and Artists

L. Frank Baum and 100 years of Oz

Researching your Writing

Creation of a Publishing House

Best of the year SF anthologies

Many of these were chosen for the subject, but more were chosen because one of the speakers was someone I wanted to meet or understand, especially book publishers and editors.

I located the SFWA Suite, a room limited to writers, and talked to some of the other writers who had retreated there from the day's activities. I intended to wait there until Mary Ann and Debra were due to arrive from their plane flight, but just as I started feeling like something was going wrong, I got a telephone call from Debra, telling me that their plane was being delayed. Still, they made it.
