Most conventions are annual events. At many of the larger cons are rff members indulging their passion for fun, creative dress, and dialog with like-minded readers.
At these cons meet members of several organizations that share the goals and mission of Reading for the Future, including RFF. They meet amid the fun to arrange collaborative activities and projects.
These members are often panelists and workshop presenters at these conventions. These members include authors and artists of the very genre that spawns the cons.
These members show teachers and homeschoolers and parents and librarians how to motivate children to read the books, which books are judged the better ones for such lofty purposes, and how to encourage youth to write for future youth, to pass on the sword as it were. Out of these conventions come the resources that are given freely to those who will teach and share.
OK. OK. I am NOT a sci fi writer. Just a wannabe. I am a fan. I get thrills from my association with these lofty elites of the genre, the authors who work as members of RFF. And there are quite a few. I have read books written by some of them.
To inform you readers of the upcoming conventions, I elected to make an entry to which comments could be added. Those of you who have a convention to list, comment away.
I will get the ball rolling with a comment on Rustycon in Seattle. I'll try to add more. You do the same.
