Sue’s Dragon Con Schedule 2022

It’s that time of year again, and in just over a week, I’ll be headed down to Atlanta for Dragon Con.  My home base will be in the American Sci-Fi Classics Room (Marriott M103-105), for which I’m part of the track staff.  But you’ll also be able to find me on several other programming tracks, talking about everything from Doctor Who to Queer 70s Sci-Fi… and of course, Star Trek.  I’ll also be taking a shift in the “Thank You Room” of the Robert A. Heinlein “Pay It Forward” Blood Drive, Sunday 4-6pm, on the Conference Level of the Hyatt.  Come find me to say hello and get a badge ribbon or three (while supplies last).  As always, schedules are subject to change up to the last minute, but this is where I expect to be…
