WisCon Reception at Room of One's Own
Tom took a few photos at a Room of One's own: I'm posting a few here. Maureen read her story "Kingdom of the Blind," which is in Plugged In. A big crowd of people materialized, with lots of hugs all around, since many of us hadn't seen one another since the last WisCon. A Room provided wine and cheese and fruit before the reading began. The audience was positively electric. Maureen said she's never before had such a responsive audience. & I was chuffed because the audience knew exactly what was going on in the scene I read, in which activists of various persuasions met to trade info, something I'd never expect the usual audience at a reading to get.
In short, WisCon is off to a roaring start.
