Readercon 31 will be virtual this year – hosted online from August 13 – 15. Registration will open in early June. Guests of Honor will be Jeffrey Ford and Ursula Vernon, with authors, editors, critics and luminaries from around the world joining the events.
Programming will include panels on both the heart of reading and the art of writing, author readings, talks and performances. Two award ceremonies will take place: Cordwainer Smith Rediscovery Award and the Shirley Jackson Awards. There will also be access to a Bookshop online, where attendees can purchase new and used books from small press and independent booksellers.
