Diversicon 27

July, 2019

The SPECULATIONS READINGS SERIES continues monthly in its 23rd year, mostly on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:45 p.m., at DreamHaven Books, 2301 38th St E, Minneapolis. Each reading includes a reception with free soda pop and cookies, and a post-reception expedition to a local bistro.

On Wednesday, August 29 J LOREN QUILL reads from his work. J Lloren Quill is a novelist, inventor, and biomedical engineer. He is the author of Severance Lost and Shadow Cursed, and is currently writing the third installment of the Fractal Forsaken series. He lives in Minnesota with his family.

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

Planning is now underway for Diversicon 27.

Diversicon is a project of SF MINNESOTA, a multicultural, multimedia organization dedicated to improving contacts among groups and individuals interested in speculative fiction, in and out of the traditional SF community. Our continuing mission: to provide the most thoughtful Programming and the mellowest, most welcoming Parties of any Minnesota SF convention, and to making our state’s SF community more closely reflect the cultural diversity of Minnesota in the third millennium.

Hotel: Diversicon will return to the Best Western Plus—Como Park.

Krushenko’s:

Inspired by a Manhattan bistro in Larry Niven’s Ringworld, this space is for people who like to spend time at SF conventions talking about SF. It started at the 1983 Minicon, and now also materializes at MarsCon, WisCon, Con-Sarnit, and Arcana (including a Diversicon-sponsored or co-sponsored party at three of the above venues!). Stop by for a mix of readings, discussions, and conversational parties hosted by SF-related groups.
