Diversicon 24

July 29-31, 2016

Twin Cities, Minnesota

Details on Diversicon 24 will be announced here in the fullness of time.

The SPECULATIONS READINGS SERIES continues monthly, mostly on Wednesdays, at DreamHaven Books, 2301 38th St E, Minneapolis. Each Speculations Reading event runs from 6:30-7:45 p.m., including a post-reading reception with free soda pop and cookies.

On Wednesday, August 26, John Calvin Rezmerski reads his poetry. Mr. Rezmerski was born in Pennsylvania, and again in Ohio, then again in Kansas, and three times more in Minnesota. By some accounts he has three lives left, but he is not taking any bets because he doesn't believe in cats. He is a member of Lady Poetesses from Hell by virtue of the fact that he channels Grace Lord Stoke (via email), from whom he has learned a great deal. He has published 20 books, chapbooks, and anthologies, including The Frederick Manfred Reader, a screenplay, and three plays. He has performed his work for schools, libraries, bookstores, science fiction conventions, clubs, professional organizations, senior centers, museums, festivals, fairs, coffee houses, bars, and on television, and on radio, including National Public Radio's Wha'd Ya Know?, and collaborated with painters, sculptors, photographers, musicians, dancers, theatrical troupes, and scientists. Over 35 years, he taught creative writing, journalism, linguistics, science fiction, and storytelling at Gustavus Adolphus College. His poetry includes 22 from TOTU and Breaking the Rules: Starting with Ghazals.

Speculations is a co-production of DreamHaven Books and SF Minnesota.

The next Diversicon planning meeting will take place 6:30pm, Monday, September 21 at Saigon Uptown Restaurant, 31st Street & Lyndale Avenue South, Minneapolis. Please come and share your feedback (and, if you like, volunteer).
